Tonya Shevenell | Malibu Maine
Hello, my name is Tonya. I’m a Maine native and author of The Maine Birthday Book.
Malibu Maine is an imaginary hometown I built when I needed a place to go and feel sure of myself at a time when my world felt unsure. Part fort, part frontier, it was where I went to escape and explore; think and not think. Having Malibu was like having a workshop for my imagination. I could design whatever I wanted, and in the process, find the perspective I needed to redesign how I felt about things mostly out of my control outside Malibu.
I made the idea of Malibu Maine into a website so I could share some of my projects, and encourage people I care about to make space for their imagination.
The Maine Birthday Book is the new addition in town! It brings animal friends, stories, special wishes and a lot of love for the outdoors. Maybe it brought you here!
As the seasons change in Malibu Maine, so does the scenery. We hope you’ll be a regular around town.
