Fusing science and art with STEAM!

I write books that put the "A" into STEM! Reading about science should be as creative and fun as doing science. Science is not simply information and facts--it's about questions, exploration, and the process of discovery. My books are illustrated with real scientific images that bring alive the stories that inspire kids to think like scientists!







"Go 303,000,000 miles, then stop at the fourth rock from the Sun."
So begins this marvelous book...
~NSTA Recommends


"CARS ON MARS grips the kids with its title, then hauls them into a great story laden with facts that are consistently interesting."
