After writing non-fiction for many years, I decided to try my hand at fiction. My first middle grade novel, ELIZA BING IS (NOT) A BIG FAT QUITTER, is available from Holiday House.
I love science and history and have numerous hands-on activity books for kids ages 6 and up.
I also have a few books for parents and teachers.
Learn about my debut picture book, TO THE STARS! The FIRST AMERICAN WOMAN TO WALK IN SPACE, and other books for young readers.
