World of Wonders

I am a Toronto-based writer, author and photographer who is inspired and fascinated by science. Science is our best way of understanding the natural world, but it is much more than that. Science is culture, and its pursuit ultimately leads to meaning, values and wonder.  My interests include astronomy, evolution, the Galapagos Islands, secular humanism, religion, climate change and science culture.  For many years, I wrote and produced astronomy programs for the McLaughlin Planetarium of the Royal Ontario Museum. I am author of books for young readers (Sterling Publishing and Penguin Young Readers, N.Y.) and articles for children’s magazines. I also write non-fiction related to the themes reflected in this blog. You follow me at I am currently the Communications and New Media Specialist at the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics, University of Toronto (–but these are my personal posts.
