Author Erika Tully’s New Book, “Glorious Gloria: The Life of a Parrotfish,” Follows a Colorful Parrotfish Who Uses Her Special Ability to Help Save the Great Barrier Reef –

Carolina Beach, NC, January 02, 2024 –(– Erika Tully, a graduate of the S. I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University who has a passion for repurposing the fabric from silk neckties to create different kinds of artwork, has completed her new book, “Glorious Gloria: The Life of a Parrotfish”: a heartfelt story about using one’s special abilities to have a positive impact on their surroundings.

“Gloria is a species of fish that is protected from fishermen because she has a special job,” writes Tully. “She eats algae that are attached to coral. She has teeth that allow her to take bites of coral. When she digests the coral that she eats, sand is what comes out. So our beaches are not only decomposed rocks and shells, but Gloria and her family of fish are significant because of their ‘poop.’ This is a story about Gloria’s journey to make a difference with her special skills.”

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Erika Tully’s engaging tale will take readers on a full-filled adventure as they follow Gloria to the Great Barrier Reef, where she hopes to help the reef in her own special way. Accompanied by vibrant artwork created by the author from silk necktie material, “Glorious Gloria” is sure to capture the imaginations of readers while helping them discover the incredible ways in which parrotfish help to protect coral reefs and replenish the world’s beaches.

Readers who wish to experience this insightful work can purchase “Glorious Gloria: The Life of a Parrotfish” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
