I’ve always been fascinated by Nature and all the amazing solutions living things have found to keep surviving in our changing world. Over the few million years life has been on Earth, countless species have evolved to share the planet, and I love being able to share my curiosity and knowledge about life on Earth. My love of Nature inspired my education by resulting in a Ph.D. in Zoology. Instead of becoming a college professor or researcher, I decided to focus my career on sharing my love and knowledge with young readers. On my site you can learn about my nonfiction science books for children and my experiences as an ever curious author.
I love doing research for my stories, and you can learn more about my adventures here. For example, I got to spend time with captive wolf pups and look for wolves in Denali National Park in Alaska. I spent time watching wolves in Yellowstone National Park, too, so I could write about them more personally.
Dogs are a special favorite too. I’ve met some special ones, like Eclipse, who figured out how to take herself to the dog park on the bus.
