Author bio

writer Starre Vartan

A geologist in her first career, Starre Vartan is now a freelance science writer—but she still picks up rocks wherever she goes. She has published short fiction, essays, and journalism in a variety of venues, including Slate, Scientific American, Audubon, Newsweek, and more. A dual citizen of the United States and Australia, her first memory is of exploring tide pools near Sydney; later the Hudson River inspired her career in the sciences.
