The fruits of what has been an incredibly busy 18 months continue to bloom. I have four new children's books coming out in the fall through
Capstone Press. The series focuses on cars and technology.
As I have been sharing with students during my recent school author visits and writing workshops, this was an incredibly challenging series for me to write. Unlike many people I know, I am not "into cars." My main goal is for my car to start and for the radio to work. I'm also not the most tech-savvy person you'll meet. I can hold my own, but when it came to explaining the intricacies of how a self-driving car operates, it was tough.
Fortunately, I have an amazing editor at Capstone (who, as a bonus, knows a lot about cars) and she did a fantastic job working with me to craft what I think is a fun, exciting, and informative series to teach elementary/middle readers about the technology behind vehicles.
The four titles will be available in hardback, paperback, and Kindle, and they are:
The Tech Behind Self-Driving Cars
The Tech Behind Electric Cars
The Tech Behind Concept Cars
The Tech Behind Off-Road Vehicles
