Rina writes hopeful, inspired by real-life stories about animal-loving tweens and teens who risk it all to save species on the brink of extinction—be it through bravery, confidence, or sheer determination! 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 STEM 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 environmental clubs at their schools, carrying out fun activities that help the planet.
