About Us

Our writers live in London, Yellowknife, White Salmon, New York, Mexico City, Portland, Baltimore, Madison, St. Louis, the central California coast, Washington, D.C., and Cedaredge.  In their day jobs, they write books, teach science writing, and roam widely over the earth to meet deadlines for Science, Nature, New Scientist, Scientific American, High Country News, Smithsonian, National Geographic, and many other magazines. By night, they write for you.
