|Snorkeling in Hawaii!|
Ivy graduated from college with a degree in Chemistry. In graduate school she studied plants, because they aren’t squishy and don’t squeal when you poke them. Her PhD didn’t teach her how to keep houseplants alive, but she did learn how to grow a certain type of fern very well – even upside down and sideways! She sent some of them up on the space shuttle Columbia and got to see the nighttime launch at Kennedy Space Center in person.
Ivy also worked as a writer and editor of children’s science textbooks. But she got tired of the publishers taking out all of the fun parts. Novels are much more fun. She also likes to craft and has had original crafts published in Family Fun Magazine.
Ivy now lives in the hills of Central Texas with her husband and three kids. And – because there’s a rule that all pets have to be a type of critter that mom is willing to catch – a dog named Topaz.
