My freelance writing on natural history has appeared in National Wildlife Magazine, Crosscut, Popular Science and others. You can find them on the Freelance page.

I have written about natural history on this website for a decade. Click on ‘Features’ or go to Articles.

I also write fiction focusing on natural history and folklore, both short stories and novels. I’m currently at work on a series about a pirate naturalist.
