After getting my degree in Art History and Archaeology (with a side of Classics, and Animal Science, just for kicks), I decided digging in the dirt was not for me. I wanted to write about history for kids and re-live it every day! Now, I live to travel all over the world in search of great museums and historical sites to visit. When I'm at home in my adopted city (Chicago), I'm a full-time writer and quickly becoming best friends with my local librarians. History is most fun when it's getting made fun of, so my nonfiction series are all about laughing. What's history without a little perspective?
