I am the author of more than sixty-five nonfiction books for young people, and over 100 stories, poems, and articles for magazine and educational publishers. My books have won awards from Bank Street College, Science Books and Films, and The Society of School Librarians International. I frequently speak to school children and teachers about nonfiction, poetry, and writing. I've also taught biology and natural history to students of all ages, and writing to adults. Much of my writing is inspired by my curiosity about nature. I’m lucky to live near a woods and lake, where there’s always a new story waiting to be discovered.
