Welcome to my website

What's New?

  • Exciting news: I have a contract with Christy Ottaviano Books at Henry Holt to do a picture book biography about Charles Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip. It will be out in late 2018 or in 2019.
  • Seasons of the Bear, A Yosemite Story  from the Yosemite Conservancy. It is a Western Writers of America Spur Award winner!
  • Poop Detectives, Working Dogs in the Field from Charlesbridge Publishing. This book is a Junior Library Guild selection!
I thrive in my world of books, reading, research, and writing award-winning nonfiction titles. Biographies, natural history and American history are my main focus. Each of my books is for young readers . . . and the young at heart!
