About Me

Who am I? 

I am a 30-something mom of two energetic boys. I wrote constantly when I was younger, but took an 18-year hiatus to pursue science in a never-ending attempt to answer the question "Why?".

Now, with zoology, animal behavior, and ecology degrees in hand, I have rediscovered my love of writing. Writing fun stuff, that is—non-fiction for kids and middle grade novels to excite kids about nature.

Storytelling soothes the savage velociraptors, snow-tiger monkeys, harpy eagles and dragons in our home, turning them back into delightful children. Now I write in a never-ending attempt to share the surprising, extraordinary, and unbelievably fascinating things I have learned with children everywhere.
