Helen Taylor writes books that inspire kids to wonder about their world in new ways. Her favorite questions are How? and Why? even though the answers are rarely simple.
As a kid, she loved science and storytelling, but it wasn’t until she grew up that she figured out how to combine the two. She started telling quirky science stories in the museum world, writing about polar bear hair plugs, catfish physicals, and other curiosities. Now, Helen writes books that make science and engineering fun and accessible for kids. How to Eat in Space is her picture book debut.
Besides writing, she enjoys traveling, baking, and searching for banana slugs in the redwoods near her home in Santa Cruz, California. Helen is represented by Amy Tompkins at Transatlantic Agency.
