All alone, an orphaned Canada
gosling made its way to the Muziks' home. Canada geese ignored it and no one would help them or even refer them to a
rehabber who could help them. The Muziks made it their goal to keep the little goose safe until they could get that
help, but days turned into weeks and they still had the fast-growing goose.
They did a lot of things wrong, but they did some things right along the way.
In fact, they've learned so much that Carol now would never take in an orphaned goose, and she gives a percentage of her Raising
Lucy profits to regional rehabbers who are trained to help geese and other animals return to the wild.
The Muziks advise others in the same situation to find a rehabber to make sure the
orphan has a chance, then donate to the organization so they can properly help the orphaned or injured animal. (see our resources page for contacts)
Carol was moved by her experience and now works as an author, illustrator, publisher, and public speaker. Who
knew that a little goose would also change her life! She loves sharing Lucy's story with groups and schools, and helps
children and adults share their stories.
feels in this divisive world we need to find ways to connect, and our stories are where we see can into each others' hearts.
Carol is available to teach art and writing in a program she developed called Telling our Stories through The Idaho Commission on the Arts. She is also available to teach creative writing through Eastern University's Get Lit! program.
The process of self-publishing
over the last 5 years has given Carol a world of experience. She works as a consultant with individuals who are interested
in creating quality self-published books or videos from the editing process through marketing.
