Welcome to my website. I’m:
–a writer with nearly 200 published books. That’s not as many pages as you may think. Many of my books have been for kids and young adults, and a lot of them are pretty short.
–a reader with an ever-growing “to read” pile. My fiction intake is high in horror, fantasy, and science fiction. Nonfiction reading rambles but often comes back to polar and Himalayan travel and exploration, evolutionary biology, and cosmology.
–a traveler whenever I can manage it. Favorite places visited so far: Tibet, Iceland, Laos, Corsica, Istanbul, and LA, perhaps the most exotic of all.
–an occasional blogger.
Students, teachers, and librarians: If you’d like to know more about my nonfiction books for teens and young readers, there’s a website dedicated to those works right here.
