Hopping Fun Creations is my independent content development company. The topselling board game, Mars 2020 (Talicor/Aristoplay), has been in print 15 years and is endorsed by astronaut Jack Lousma. Bestselling books are the award-winning Bone Detective: The Story of Forensic Anthropologist Diane France, the Wild Weather disaster series (2 million sold) and 25 Super Cool Math Board Games.

I've written stories and designed games cross the media, on a range of topics (mostly nonfiction, some fiction), with an emphasis in science, math, and language. I'm also the author of 50+ books for tweens/teens for publishers such as Scholastic, Mc-Graw-Hill, Sterling, Pearson, Mondo, Newbridge, and others.
I'm the conceptual stage of developing an interactive biography that plays like a game—a serious game aimed at exploring memory loss. I've also designed dozens of educational science and math games for trade and school markets.
