Personal bio

I am a journalist working to become a children’s author.

My goal is to create books that show children another world is possible, and that they can be part of making it.

On this site I recommend books and other media about people who have fought for a more just society throughout history.

I especially love learning about women trailblazers, including those in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. I host a podcast about women in STEM, which you can listen to here.

    Thank you for your kind words about Little Melba and Her Big Trombone. I agree with you, Frank Morrison’s artwork is breathtaking.
