I write books about science. Nature fascinates me, as does its history.

So far, I've written twelve books, including A Planet of Viruses and Evolution: Making Sense of Life. I'm now writing a book about heredity. I'm a columnist for the New York Times, and I've written for magazines such as National Geographic and Wired. I've won awards for my work from the National Academies of Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. My blog, The Loom, is published by National Geographic Magazine (http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/blog/the-loom) .
