Alison Pearce Stevens

Alison Pearce Stevens is a former duck wrangler, beekeeper, and scientist who specializes in writing about science and nature for kids and teens. She has an M.S. in Zoology and a Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior. After several years teaching at the college level, Alison decided that wasn’t for her. She turned to science writing and hasn’t looked back.

She now lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two kids, and a small menagerie of cuddly (and not-so cuddly) critters. She writes for Science News for Students, the Nature Education Knowledge Project, ASK (Arts and Sciences for Kids) magazine, Highlights, and National Geographic Kids' Books.
