Magazine Articles – Nonfiction

Science can be intimidating. however, our world is here because of science. It’s everywhere, from cooking to the weather to using our cell phones. And science can feel like a completely foreign language, with its own terminology and rules that are hard to get one’s head around. 

Even posting this blog and trying to get the photos to line up can make me want to throw my mouse at the wall. Except I’d break it and then where would I be? (I hate track pads)

The same way as with language, once you learn the basics, begin to understand the meanings of the words, a whole new world opens up. 

That’s why I love writing about biology, physics, and chemistry. I’ve researched and written articles about topics from optics to elephants. It helps me to understand how the world works and the why behind everything! 

And I incorporate science into my fiction, too! 

I’m excited to be writing a book Chemical Reactions, due out in 2020. I’m having tons of fun performing the experiments! As for Louie our boxer? Not quite as much. 

I have a new appreciation for scientists because the experiments don’t always work the first time. Or the second…

But with what other discipline of science can we make colors change, or there’s a potential for explosions?
