Nonfiction author Heather L. Montgomery uses yuck appeal to engage young minds and provoke wild discoveries. During a typical school visit, petrified parts and tree guts inspire reluctant writers and encourage scientific thinking. Heather has a B.S. in Biology, a M.S. in Environmental Education, and awards for her educational programs. When she is not writing, she can be found knee-deep in a creek catching bugs. Heather lives on the Tennessee/Alabama border. Learn more about her nonfiction at www.HeatherLMontgomery.com.
