Author, Mary Lowd, fondly recognizes CanopyMeg’s book, “Life in the Treetops,” as an inspiration for her science-fiction story. Ms. Lowd had been researching information about trees and forests when she discovered CanopyMeg’s amazing story about life as a woman scientist in Australia in “the Nineteen Seventies.” The story Ms. Lowd ended up writing is called, “Life with the Tumblers,” and is about a woman anthropologist who lives on an alien planet and studies the indigenous alien lifeforms. Although the stories differ, Ms. Lowd contributes her ideas to the valuable knowledge gained in CanopyMeg’s book.
