Welcome to the WONDERS OF WEIRD!
I am a children's writer specializing in all things weird and wonderful and the critical thinking skills necessary to evaluate the evidence to support and dismiss them. My school visits explore those quirky topics and how to do reliable research. My goal is to empowers kids everywhere! I also celebrate the individuality of every young reader.

These books I've written (and a few more) are still in print:
Wild Dogs (2005), Tales of the Cryptids (2006), Dinosaur Parade (2008), Saving the Baghad Zoo (2010), In Search of Sasquatch (2011)

These books are out of print, but I still love them. Hope you do, too:
I Bought a Baby Chicken (2001), Dinosaur Mummies (2003) , Albino Animals (2004), Mysteries of the Mummy Kids (2007), Wild Horses (2008), Hatchlings: Life Size Baby Dinosaurs (2012).
What's next? More nonfiction, of course -- decomposition, tardigrades, African wild dogs and video games are all in my research bins. And I have two new fiction series ideas I hope to develop. So stay tuned! Anything is possible when weird is wonderful! Is there something you want me to write? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

new from Darby Creek/Lerner: a TWO book series!
Kids often ask me, "What would you do if you met Sasquatch?"
LOOKING FOR OTHER WORLDLY EXPERIENCES?
Great! My new book, GHOSTLY EVIDENCE from Millbrook Press at Lerner is now available. Explore the basics of paranormal investigation. Explore world famous haunted places and places you've never considered before. Review world famous hoaxes and moments hard to define as anything but mysterious. You can even consider the ghostly moments I experience myself during four years of cross country investigation (see YouTube video below)! The book may give you goose bumps, but it will definitely give you food for afterlife thought!
