About Me

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, and Odyssey 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.


This is my cute, but gross Australian Labradoodle, Figment. Why is he gross? You don’t want to know.
