“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Arthur C. Clarke


Hello! I’m Sue. I’m a children’s author, living in Wisconsin. You’ve found my home page. Welcome!

Science influences every aspect of modern life so it’s crucial that we understand it. That’s why I started my science blog. I love to find out how science works. Knowledge is power. I want to share that with you. My blog is where I explore — and make sense of — intriguing science topics. Science can seem like magic, more so when you understand it!

I also love to read, so I often recommend children’s books on my blog. Books for kids are among the best magic of all!

My fiction and my science articles have appeared in publications, such as Highlights, ASK, Cricket, Spider, Odyssey, Fun for Kidz, Faces, and Muse magazines.
