I write science and environmental journalism and nature essays. Some of my most recent pieces found online are linked to on my blog.

My articles, including nonfiction articles for children, have appeared in The Boston Globe, The Seattle Times, Science News, and other publications.

I write a monthly environment column, Down to Earth, for the Daily Hampshire Gazette and the Valley Advocate.

Selected nature essays published in The Common Online can be found here, including:

An interview for the radio program Writer’s Voice, and a reading of an essay, are here (starting 32 minutes in).

Sample articles available online include:

I teach science writing at Smith College’s Jacobson Writing Center and as a lecturer in the English department.
