“I like The Tortoise very much! It is a new kind of publication,
not a scientific journal, not a hobbyist magazine, it is something
totally different. I look forward to the next issue.”
—Dr. Peter C. H. Pritchard, Chelonian Research Institute

The Tortoise Magazine, [is] ostensibly Us Weekly for people
who follow reptiles instead of Brad Pitt and ‘The Bachelor’”

A Hilarious Look at What it Takes to Live with a Hobby-Obsessed Spouse

What would you do if your spouse filled your living room, kitchen, bathtub and even your freezer with turtles? (The ones in the freezer, wrapped in aluminum foil, had passed on. Even so!) Most women would have fled for the hills or filed for divorce. Not me.

Confessions of a Turtle Wife is the story of how and why for more than 20 years I've stuck to my marriage vows through thick, thin, and turtles ad infinitem. This book can show you how to love someone no matter what crazy thing they're into, as well as how to laugh at yourself, your significant other, and thing odd things life throws at us all. You'll love this funny, warm, insightful book about the trials and tribulations of one woman's turtle-obsessed marriage!
