Terrific Book Signing

Gail at Bookstore 1 Sarasota


“…The Scent of Something Sneaky is a top recommendation for pre-teens and teens looking for a leisure read that's action-packed and vivid.”-- Midwest Book Reviews

“…a good adventure that not only dwells on the intriguing mystery at hand, but also on the characters themselves.” – Readers’ Favorite 5-Star Rating

And, for Stinks!---August 7, 2015 “STEM Can Be Fiction, Too”

“...the type of book that is likely to inspire readers who might otherwise avoid STEM to give it a chance because it reveals how science can have important real-world applications.” STEM Friday

Something Stinks cover

continue to be discovered.

I’ve traveled from Virginia to Orlando to Olympia, Washington talking to kids about writing and science.

Teachers say Stinks! "will help me show my students science isn’t just a subject we learn…it’s a way of life!" And, "your book…we are using in conjunction with an end of the year STEM project on filtration and pollution."
