I’m currently writing Girl Warriors, a middle grade nonfiction book for fans of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, due out with Chicago Review Press in 2021. The book tells the stories of 25 girls and women under age 25 who are rising up to reverse the climate crisis, as they inspire hope and motivate change.


I write about girls and women who are reversing the climate crisis. I believe that journalism is activism. I became a reporter when I was 21 and moved to the Czech Republic to write for The Prague Post. I regularly contribute to The Washington Post. 


Most recently for The Washington Post, I wrote about these teen activists who are hustling to save the planet — and the moms who make their work possible.  I’ve written about parenting for The New York Times. YahooBrain, Child, Ravishly, WaPo’s On Parenting, and more. Solo moms are my heroes. I was one for a decade.
