Roxanne has liked science ever since she started watching "Bill Nye the Science Guy" on Saturday mornings over a bowl of sucrotic O's. She especially likes writing about dinosaurs, climate change and evolution. In college, she studied English literature but still managed to put in time in the greenhouse as a botany lab assistant and in the pool for varsity water polo. When not writing about science, she moonlights as a cartoonist and illustrator.
