About Lisa DeProspo Philo
Lisa has been making up stories since she was a little girl, which her mother initially encouraged but later lamented. She remains humbled that for 20 years she has been paid to write and teach about science, the environment, and people’s connections to those topics, but she is thrilled to have recently returned to her roots, crafting stories for children (and poetry for herself). Having spent much of her childhood outside of the States, her heart is often travelling the world. But her feet are usually planted in the garden of her Rhode Island home, which she shares with her husband, two sons, and more pets than reasonably fit there.
