I live in Midcoast, Maine with my husband and six-year old twin girls. I’ve played on lobster boats while getting my M.S. in Marine Science, designed and led snorkeling and kayaking tours in San Diego for the Scripps Institute of Oceanography and Birch Aquarium, taken kids on bike tours in Europe and the US, and taught Biology to military personnel in Sardinia, Italy. I have written and published several essays about these adventures, and have now shifted my passion for creative writing to picture books about science and nature. I am currently working on several stories that attempt answer to answer my girls’ questions about the natural world. Being in nature with them has opened my eyes to things I have so easily overlooked before and given me great inspiration for writing.
