This geeky lady loves science and weird things, and isn’t afraid to show it! Her books are chock-full of delicious and bizarre factoids. Take Stiff. Who would think that a book about cadavers would be fascinating? Do you know how the peeps on CSI can tell how long a body has been lying around? What about the history of organ donation? Stiff makes these topics interesting and kinda humorous. And if you ever wondered what happens to vomit in outer space, or what the space shuttle toilets are like, check out Packing for Mars. You’ll never think of space the same way again!
