About Susan Berk Koch
I’m a children’s author and science writer. I earned my B.S. in biology with a minor in chemistry, then went on to attain a D.D.S. from Marquette University. I spent a year in New York at a Veterans’ hospital in a residency program, after which time, I practiced dentistry for ten years.
When our oldest son was in third grade, his teacher considered him a talented writer with a lot of potential. He must have acquired that talent from somewhere. Maybe even from me!
I sat down and wrote a novel—in long hand—start to finish. After reading that draft, I realized it was time to learn how to write. I wanted to follow my dream.
I’ve since sold dozens of stories to publications such as Highlights, Ask, Muse, Ladybug, Boys’ Life and more. I’m a member of the SCBWI, and served as our local chapter’s Critique Group Coordinator for three years. My book from Nomad Press, Chemical Reactions, is available now!
Science Blog Mission Statement
Science is amazing! From cool chemistry, biology, and physics experiments you can do with your kids or to impress your friends, to articles that deconstruct the why behind how science works, you’ll find intriguing topics here to explore.
I do the research so you don’t have to!
Be The Best-Informed!
When I’m not researching the mysteries of science or immersed in fictional world-building and characters, you can find me walking with our dog Louie, practicing yoga, reading absolutely everything I can, gardening, swimming (when there’s a body of warm water!) and subjecting my family to my cooking experiments.
Make Sense of Science is my email newsletter, where I share whenever I post about new tech developments, great books, as well as tools and resources for STEM at home or in the classroom. I’d be ever so grateful if you’d subscribe!
