My book GIRL WARRIORS: How 25 Young Activists Are Saving the Earth is due out in April 2021 (Chicago Review Press).

This middle grade nonfiction book tells the stories of 25 climate activists under age 25 who are tackling the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced.


I write about girls and women who are reversing the climate crisis. I became a reporter when I was 21 and moved to the Czech Republic to write for The Prague Post. I’ve written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, Salon, Ravishly, BabyCenter, Yahoo, and more.


My feature for The Washington Post about these teen activists hustling to save the planet — and the moms who make their work possible is what inspired my current book. I write because the climate crisis affects the most vulnerable. I write to communicate, to help people connect, and to create a new future.

Also, solo moms are my heroes. I was one for a decade.
