about me

Stephanie will do anything to research a book, including sitting outside for hours in the snow to observe wolf mating behavior. She volunteers with the Endangered Wolf Center and loves teaching kids about wolves and other canids.


School and library visits are always fun! Stephanie would be thrilled to bring her science experiments and history mysteries to your students.

Stephanie Bearce is the award-winning author of 28 books for children. She loves digging through dirt for fossils, exploring haunted hotels and castles, and doing science experiments that explode. A former teacher with 25 years of experience in the classroom, Stephanie loves to visit schools, libraries, literature festivals and homeschool co-ops.

Stephanie makes her home in the St. Louis area, but she grew up on a farm in Kansas, where she learned how to ride horses and hunt arrowheads. When she is not writing, researching, or testing new crafts and experiments, Stephanie loves to travel. She does her globe trotting with her husband, Darrell, who is an actual rocket scientist.
