Get Real! That's what I love to do most--write about real people, places, and things. During my travels, I've met some fascinating people, from bug scientists to bone detectives. I've also had the privilege of meeting some of the heroes, and hero dogs, of September 11th.
These past several years have been amazing--especially for THE ELEPHANT SCIENTIST, which follows the remarkable work of Caitlin O'Connell, a researcher who studies African elephants at Etosha National Park in Namibia. The book has received a Robert F. Sibert Informational Honor from the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a Boston Globe-Horn Book Nonfiction Honor, and designation as an Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students by the National Science Teachers Association/Children's Book Council.
In 2014, EVERY BODY'S TALKING focuses on human behavior and how we communicate messages without saying a word. From head to toe, our bodies say volumes about what we're thinking and feeling--whether we want them to or not. And it's not just others who are affected by our moves. We're also influenced by our actions, including the way we walk, sit and stand. So put on a smile and get ready to learn more about this not-so-hidden language!
