Congratulations to NASA for designing a one-ton, plutonium-powered, six-wheeled rover covered in scientific instruments, and then lowering that rover onto the surface of Mars with a rocket-powered crane!
What I’m Doing Now
Book #1 of the Galaxy Games series is out and I’m hard at work polishing up Book #2 for its scheduled release on the Tu Books Spring 2013 list. This is the first time I’ve ever written a sequel, and I’m enjoying the chance to tell a story that’s bigger than a single book. For all the readers who get to the end of Book #1 and are desperate to know what happens next, keep watching this space!
Launch Pad: Writing…for Science!
I spent a week at the University of Wyoming for the 2011 Launch Pad program, where science fiction authors learn the facts of space and astronomy so we can bring better and more accurate information to our readers. Real about it here.
I’m so happy!
Galaxy Games is my new series about sports, video games, and alien visitors. A team of kids must represent Earth in a sports tournament against kids from other worlds across the galaxy.
