TWISTED TRUE TALES FROM SCIENCE
Science is weird and these books will prove it!
Learn about the crazy cures doctors used like sticking blood sucking leeches on people's arms or medicine made of dead mouse paste.
Read about wild inventors like Tycho Brahe who had a pet moose, lived in a castle, and got his nose cut off in a duel. Oh yes - and he revolutionized the science of astronomy.
Discover how gunpowder was really invented and how Alfred Nobel nearly blew up a city in his quest for dynamite.
Find out what it's like to go inside a volcano, or jump into a raging forest fire. Meet the scientists who chase the world's wildest storms risk everything to study disasters up close and personal.
I'm so glad you came to visit!
I am a writer and a teacher. I especially love digging up strange facts about science and history. For example - did you know that ...
Seahorses don't have stomachs,
giraffes have no vocal cords, and
the tongue of a Blue whale weighs more than an elephant?
Crazy, right? But those are just some of the things you can learn from reading and research. I share my discoveries in my books and during school visits.
