Kathryn Hulick is the author of Strange But True: 10 of the World's Greatest Mysteries Explained, about the science behind paranormal mysteries, including ghosts, aliens, sea monsters and more. A sequel about the future of technology comes out in 2020. Hulick also writes regularly for Science News for Students and Muse magazine.
Her favorite part of writing about science is getting to speak with researchers in many different fields. Once, she spoke with an expert on parallel universes while he was shoveling snow from his driveway.
Hulick lives in Massachusetts with her family and most enjoys hiking, gardening and learning about robots.
