About the Author

Kelly Doudna has always had an interest in science. She was a member of her junior high school school science club, but turned her focus to English and writing in college. She attempted the study of meteorology in graduate school, but was kicked out of the program after she flunked calculus twice. That led her to pursue a commercial art degree, and today she combines all of these interests as a graphic designer and in-house writer at Mighty Media, Inc. Kelly has authored over 250 educational books for children on topics ranging from the alphabet to baby animals to the weather. In her free time, Kelly enthusiastically pursues bicycling, photography, cooking, and the craft beer scene, and documents it all in her blog.
