As you can see from my photo, I'll do just about anything to make history come alive!

Some people think that history is old and dry and doesn't have much to do with their own lives – wrong, wrong, wrong!

But never fear, I’ll show you what history is REALLY like, in my books and curriculum-related school presentations.

Many of my books are about multicultural heroes who, until recently, have been sadly omitted from history. Others are about important people you may never have heard of before. They can’t wait for you to learn about them!

See how these people overcame great difficulties and did great things. They made a difference in our world – and so can you!

When I'm not reading or writing or riding or dancing or acting or singing, I study Russian and Russia.


I met my great illustrator, Vincent X. Kirsch, at last!
