I live on 50 acres of rural Ontario, Canada, a habitat I share with assorted domestic creatures: cats and dogs, chickens, ducks, and geese, and some sheep. My husband and I are restoring an old, poorly built farmhouse with our own hands. I am prone to hero worship (e.g., favorite president: Lincoln; favorite scientist/explorer: Alexander von Humboldt). I am a clutz who cannot open child-proof packaging, but I can put up drywall, paint, sew, and love to cook. I have made a hobby out of thinking about things – everything – and I’m insatiably curious. And I like to write it down.A PhD in animal behavior has led to a habit of analyzing people. A Bachelor of Education has led to teaching science in elementary, secondary, and postsecondary institutions, and the most challenging of all – teaching scientists how to teach science. My work experience includes Associate Director of a multimedia-publishing group, Director for Let's Talk Science, a science education not-for-profit organization, and Head of Product Development for an educational publisher. I currently work as a freelance writer, contributing to magazines, science textbooks and penning children’s books. I also do consultancy work for museums, publishers, and government agencies, helping to develop content for classrooms.
