After a LOT of hard work last year, I’m so excited to finally announce that I have a new book coming out, BLACK MEN IN SCIENCE.
All throughout history, Black men have made important contributions to scientific discovery. This collection of biographies for kids explores 15 of these intelligent men and the extraordinary scientific accomplishments they achieved—even when they faced huge challenges.
My favorite part of writing BLACK MEN IN SCIENCE was the research! I know that sounds strange, but I had a blast digging through old books and even older newspaper articles looking for details to help shine a light on the lives of these important historical figures. I know you’re going to love the book.
I’m thrilled to announce that my chapter book manuscript THE ROBOT IN THE LIBRARY won SCBWI’s Work in Progress Award in the Chapter Books category. Click below to find out more and to see the winners in the other categories.
OFF BASE and SOCCER SUSPICIONS, my two new Jake Maddox JV Mysteries, are now available for pre-order. Both books combine two of my favorite childhood reading topics, mysteries and sports. These books are part of the Jake Maddox series of books from Stone Arch Books and are perfect for readers 8-11 years old.
