More About the Author


George Shea is a children's writer and environmental journalist. His most
recent non-fiction book is a biography of Rachel Carson: "Rachel Carson, Founder of the Environmental Movement." He is currently writing a biography of global warming pioneer, Charles David Keeling (1928-2005) of Keeling Curve fame and sees a strong parallels between Keeling and Carson. "Rachel Carson woke the world up to the fact that the environment was vulnerable and could be damaged, even destroyed by human activity. Less than a decade later, Keeling accomplished the same thing relative to global warming with his measurements that showed the relentless growth of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere."

He also enjoys writing about inventors. His "First Flight, the Story of Tom Tate and the Wright Brothers, tells the true story of young Tom Tate, a Kitty Hawk boy who befriended Wilbur and Orville and became a 12 year old test pilot when the Wrights sent him up in their first experimental glider.

He lives in Studio City, California with his wife, Martha Stevens, a writer and professional storyteller. In 2009, George and Martha's play, "Seeds," a retelling of the myth of Persephone was read at Fordham Lincoln Center.
