I was born and grew up in Philadelphia, where I spent countless hours reading and volunteering in the Free Library of Philadelphia. My favorite childhood book was E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web. To this day it inspires me, since the character of Charlotte is a writer like I am—though she writes words in her spider web and I write them on my computer. She uses the words in her web to save the life of a friend, and that tells me that words are very powerful.
I went to Cornell University where I first started learning about the environment. I discovered my deep love for the ocean on many trips with my husband and children to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, which led me to write several ocean books. Into the A, B, Sea: An Ocean Alphabet has sold more than a quarter million copies.
I read as much as I can from first thing in the morning until bedtime, especially about animals, science, history, and people around the world. I love to swim, walk in beautiful parts of nature, and visit the ocean which has inspired my books in so man ways.. My book ideas come from the natural world, science, my childhood, my kids’ childhoods, photos, and sometimes even just cool words that catch my eye and ear like “sesquipedalian.”
