Me with my five biggest fans

                                                                                    Me with my five biggest fans

I have a B.A. in psychology from Yale and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Georgetown.  I've taught reading to little kids and biology to big kids.  But let's get to the more interesting stuff.

Favorite food: Chocolate.  Not very original, I know, but most people who claim to have a different favorite food are either lying or missing several very important taste buds.

Favorite animals: Do my kids count?  Other than those four wild animals, I really love the baby bunny rabbits that hop into the bushes when I jog past them on the trail near my house.


Favorite children's books: Waaaaay too many to list.  But "A Birthday for Frances," "The Perfect Nest," "The Big Orange Splot," and "This is Not My Hat" are a few for the picture book crowd.  For older kids, anything by Gordon Korman, Susan Cooper, or L.M Montgomery.
