One of the moms that I do the nature program with works at a publishers. She just contacted me to see if I would be willing to fact check a childrens' chemistry textbook. Looks like fun!

And since I'm hoping to do more writing, she might be a good contact person if I decide to do some childrens' STEM type writing...

Lisa- Bingo! Having a solid "in" with a publisher is the best way to actually get something in print with an ISBN number.
Work this line- writing is a lot of fun and can be lucrative- at least for us folks used to teacher's salaries.
Keep us up to date on your work-

That has to be an awesome experience! I hope you get to do some STEM writing. I had some really boring science teachers as a kid so I tried to make my science lessons exciting. Thanks for what you are doing.
