Seven Books in One Month

by Kathryn on September 20, 2017

I guess five articles in a few weeks doesn’t seem so impressive any more! I had seven books come out in August 2017. Here they are:

  1. Robotics Engineer, Cutting Edge Careers, ReferencePoint Press, August 2017
  2. Virtual Reality Developer, Cutting Edge Careers, ReferencePoint Press, August 2017
  3. Real-World STEM: Develop Fusion Energy, ReferencePoint Press, August 2017
  4. Kimberly Bryant: Founder of Black Girls Code, Leading Women, Cavendish Square, August 2017
  5. Hydrogen, The Chemistry of Everyday Elements, Mason Crest, August 2017
  6. Gold, The Chemistry of Everyday Elements, Mason Crest, August 2017
  7. My Teenage Life in Russia, Customs & Cultures of the World, Mason Crest, August 2017

I wrote all of these books beginning with Hydrogen in August 2016. I finished the last one, Virtual Reality Developer, in April 2017. So really, I wrote seven books in nine months.

My favorite to work on was also the one that took the longest: Develop Fusion Energy. I liked it because I learned the most. The topic was very difficult — I had to wrap my head around some complex concepts, including plasma, magnetic confinement, and inertial confinement. But that’s what I love most about writing nonfiction for kids. My job is to understand cool, complex ideas completely enough to explain them to anybody. What fun!

Here’s the first set I received:

Update: Another box of books arrived! Here they are:

Of course I’m not a Russian teenager. For that book, I wrote chapters on history, culture, and customs. The two books on elements were a lot of fun to work on. They are intended to make chemistry fun. They look at the real world applications of each element.
