Almost every morning I write on my window seat about strong girls and women who have made historical contributions to science or the arts.


Grasping Mysteries:Girls Who Loved Math

My latest book, Grasping Mysteries: Girls Who Loved Math introduces women who used math to imagine what’s beyond horizons or under the sea, to make social change, or create inventions that improve our lives.

Finding Wonders

Finding Wonders offers a look into the lives of scientists Maria Merian, Mary Anning, and Maria Mitchell.

“Vividly imagines the lives of three girls who grew up to become famous for their achievements in science. . . . each of these three perceptive portrayals is original and memorable.”
