Welcome! Great to e-see you 🙂
Thanks for popping in.
If you have any questions or would just like to say hi, I’d love to hear from you.
Who am I?
I’m the author of seven books published in Australia and overseas, including:
- ZEROES AND ONES (Notable Book, CBCA 2019; Shortlisted Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year 2019);
- OFF THE TRACK (Shortlisted Wilderness Society’s Environment Prize 2019); and
- TO THE LIGHTHOUSE (Shortlisted WAYRBA 2019).
I have degrees in biotechnology and science communication and I’m a past editor of Scientriffic, CERN’s iSGTW, and Scitech’s Particle.
I’ve worked as a science communicator for nearly 20 years across six countries. I’ve been a science circus performer, garbage analyst, museum writer, and atom-smashing reporter at CERN, but my all-time favourite job is working with kids to embrace the intersection between science, technology and creativity.
I’m based in sunny Perth, Western Australia. I sometimes teach at Curtin University, and I’m always working on my next book.
Give a kid a book for their next birthday. It won’t break, it’s not plastic, and it will open their mind to new worlds and new ideas.
Much love to all you lovely book reviewers… It means so much to read your kind words.
THANK YOU for taking the time to review my books and help spread the word!
Check out these great classroom ideas for inspiring kids to explore science, creativity and literature, developed with teachers in mind. Most are based on my books.
