Thanks for stopping by to learn more about me and my books.

I’ve got three new books coming out in September!  My first two EZ readers for Simon Spotlight (Astronaut Mae Jemison and the Women Who Launched the Computer Age).

I was also lucky enough to participate in the writing of American Girl Ultimate Visual Guide, which is published on September 6th. 

I also love visiting schools in person to talk about writing, weird-and-wacky facts, and bringing history to life.

The best way to reach me is via e-mail here:
