Writer pens book about Island celebrity turtle: Allison

The cover of the book (left) and Dave Cromwell with Allison: his inspiration (right).

Staff Writer

Inspiration can be a heavy burden; at least that was the case for Dave Cromwell when he under­took writing a book for the first time two years ago.

Having been in the me­dia, specifically broad­cast journalism, business for a number of years and being an active member of Sea Turtle Inc. Staff, Cromwell felt he had the tools needed to bring what he deemed an important story to the attention of young people. He found that his mission would be one full of trials, but, in the end, he believes it will be worthwhile.
