Rina writes hopeful, inspired by real-life adventure novels about eco-warrior kids who risk it all to help save the natural world. She also writes action-based eco-nonfiction for young people who want to get outdoors and do activities that help the planet.

A few of her works-in-progress include:

  • A Contemporary YA novel about a determined sixteen-year-old who travels to Madagascar to follow her dreams of becoming a primatologist like Dr. Jane Goodall, but in a twist of fate ends up helping save one of the world’s rarest animals and discovers her true calling.
  • A nonfiction project that follows real tweens and teens in an environmental club at their school, carrying out fun activities that help the planet.
