FionabayrockAdding international flavoUr to the organizer mix, I’m a Canadian
children’s author specializing in "way cool" science aimed at the

I blog about writing and books at Books and ‘Rocks, where I’ve been
known to participate in Poetry Friday and Nonfiction Monday on

I served on the 2007 Cybils NFPB panel, and am very excited to be
