Welcome to my website!

I write children's books about science and technology. Check out my latest series, Curious McCarthy (Capstone Publishing). Find out more by clicking on the links on the right!

It wasn't until college that I discovered science and engineering. That's when I took all the geology, hydrology, and math classes that I could. I became a geologist and hydrologist, studying rocks and water.

My hope is to teach kids about the fascinating world of science and nature at an early age. So now I spend part of my time writing fiction and non-fiction for early and middle grade readers. Some of my fiction is humorous and some is lyrical. All my writing is genre-bending, having elements of fiction and non-fiction.

I also love to travel, especially to the National Parks, to see amazing natural phenomena. Connecting kids with nature is another goal of my writing.

Although I still work as a scientist, I might collect more books than rocks. Fargo, North Dakota is my current base for exploring the world - rocks, books, words, and all.
