• Author. Geologist. Engineer. Amateur juggler. Mother of three. I like to explore why some readers struggle. I collect more books than rocks. I like to study foreign languages, too, and keep lists of fun words to say, like lulas (pronounced loo-lush by the Portuguese fisherman I visited while wandering on a rocky beach). North Dakota is my current base for exploring the world–rocks, books, words, and all.
