My fascination with the natural world goes way back to my early childhood when I always had to visit the flamingos and the zebras whenever my family went to the zoo. Why were flamingos pink? I wondered. Why did zebras have stripes? Why not the other way around?
Without being aware of it, I grew into a science nerd. Writers I admired included Rachel Carson and Carl Sagan, and I got away from reading fiction more and more. These days there are so many excellent writers producing books about scientific topics and the history of science that it's hard to know where to start. I tend to look first for a woman's name as the author, and go from there. I still doubt that I'll ever run out of reading material.
When I'm not reading, I'm generally riding herd on my silly dogs. I also make things without always following directions or patterns. Sometimes they turn out the way I imagined. Other times they turn out awesome.
