Evelyn Bookless

Evelyn has taught in inner city London, as well as internationally, in Hong Kong and Singapore (where she currently resides).

Evelyn loves the water. Her first-time diving was at The Great Barrier Reef. It blew her mind (but thankfully she made a full recovery!). Saddened by the amount of plastic waste she has seen in the ocean, Evelyn wrote Captain Green and the Plastic Scene.
