A former middle school teacher, I'm a children's author with Disney/Hyperion. My first children's book, THE NEPTUNE PROJECT, was selected to the Bluebonnet Mast List in 2014. It also won Florida's Sunshine State Young Reader's Award and was endorsed as a strong science-based read for kids by the AAAS.
In my interactive presentation, The Secrets to Becoming a Better Writer, I talk about how I became a writer and I get kids excited about reading and writing stories of their own. I also teach fun writing workshops on a variety of topics. I bring scuba gear and marine puppets to all my presentations. You can read more about the various programs I offer at: www.pollyholyoke.com.
