My Mission: To deepen our love and understanding of the universe.


Science is handing us an extraordinary origin story . . . a story we all share, not only with every human, but with every living being, our earth and the entire universe. It's a new story -- indeed, we only learned the age of the universe within the last nine years -- and we've only barely begun to grapple with this new understanding of a universe far more dramatic than we ever dreamed of.

Inspired by the work of Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme, Maria Montessori, Miriam MacGillis and numerous others, I studied cosmology, evolutionary biology and anthropology, and worked with numerous scientists to write a Universe Story Trilogy for children. Each book has a story section targeted for the elementary and middle school levels and a science concept section in the back for teachers and parents. The books are now used in classrooms around the world.
