Welcome to my website.

Did you know that…

Octopus have nine brains, three hearts, and blue blood?

Horned lizards can shoot blood from their eyes?

Cows poop 15 times a day? They make 115 pounds of poop every day!

I love weird facts and writing about them for kids. I am an author,

history detective, fossil collector, craft queen, and lover of all things

curious and creative.

Please poke around my website and read my blog – Curious and Creative.

I have four new books coming out in 2021, and some oldies but goodies you may want to read. I’d love to visit your school or library and maybe do an experiment or two.
