About Me

Hello, my name is Laura. College professor by day and children’s writer by night, I have published numerous academic articles on human development as well as nonfiction stories in AppleSeeds, Ask, Muse, Nature Friend, Odyssey, and Root & Star magazines.

When I’m not writing, I teach college-level classes on child development, media, biopsychology, research, and gender. You can find me at Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA as well as on Twitter (@lkzimmermannphd), Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

Thank you for stopping by!
