Wow, has it been ages since I have done anything with this webpage. . . you'd think my life had gone on hold when the opposite is true. SO -- in addition to changing the look of the site, I have finally updated my writing page with all sorts of new clips from Popular Mechanics, Nature, and Discover among other things. My resume is all shiny and new. You can also read all about my amazingly fun wedding to Steve Beeson in May. And, oh yeah, I had a baby boy three weeks ago. Of course I have a blog dedicated to him.

I have set up the blog-to-be for my China trip. I get to Hong Kong on September 4, so you can start watching for entries then . . .

I have just gotten back from Kyoto, and so have added my trip stories.
January 22, 2005
And, as always, I'm updating my writer's blog.

And of course, if you are looking for speakers on Einstein, especially during 2005, the 100th anniversary of special relativity, Aries and I are available. Our prepared talks are here.

If you didn't see Aries and me at our Politics and Prose gig two weeks ago -- or alternatively if you're an insomniac and will be awake at 6:15 AM this Sunday -- you can see a taping of our talk on Book TV on C-Span2.

I am preparing to go to India -- so I have a begun a new section under On Traveling.
Oh, and I haven't plugged my friend Catherine's website lately. Read and be amused!

The book pages have all had a major re-do so that the links --hallelujah! -- pretty much all work now.
April 28, 2004
I've added a new blog on the craziness of the working world . . . which is really just a place for my friends to put up anonymous rants about the people they have to work with.
I am still maintaining my Online Writing Journal.
And of course don't forget that Aries Keck and I will be speaking at Politics and Prose in Washington, DC on July 25, at 5 PM about our new book Einstein: A to Z. Mark your calendar now!

Most important update -- Aries Keck and I will be speaking at Politics and Prose in Washington, DC on July 25, at 5 PM about our new book Einstein: A to Z. Mark your calendar now!
In other news, I am starting up the "Online Writing Journal" again, and hope to keep it updated regularly.
Also, the book club pages have been updated.
January 14, 2004
are some new updates -- for the first time in awhile, due to the fact that
I have spent most of the last three months training to become a pilates
instructor. (Come in to Quantum
Fitness Pilates if you're interested in experiencing this first
hand. :-) )
September 14, 2003
I am a) in Germany b) still not done with my book on Einstein -- though as soon as I finish the last entry on General Relativity (which is a doozy) I will only have (a lot of) editing left to do. I am so very close to returning to the land of the living -- and ready to play lots all fall. . . In the meantime new updates are in the travel section where I am writing about my current trip to Jena.

This fall will be our tenth anniversary of the trip--which, while not being a strictly science-writer trip, has seen a phenomenal lot of DC writers climbing their way up the science writing career ladder. (We had four former Science interns -- John Travis, Lisa Seachrist Chiu, Jocelyn Kaiser and I -- on our last trip.) Kinda cool.
Speaking of food, here's a link to the site that most recently had me laughing until there were tears in my eyes. . . (It's a list of Weight Watchers recipes from the 1970s. Definitely worth reading.)

Because Rebecka says I'm impossible to shop for, I have registered for everything in the whole world I could ever want at Organized Registry. Since my birthday is a full 9 months away, this isn't so useful to anyone else, but it was still really fun to register for things. . .
February 7, 2003
My friend Hilary Liftin has just written a new book called Candy and Me: A Love Story. (Her first book, Dear Exile, is on my favorite book list--and not just because she is my friend.) Go to her website and share memories of your favorite candy experiences.
December 21, 2002
I have once again updated my writing page, adding a link to a recent article I wrote for Physical Review Focus on new MRI techniques.
In other news it's the holiday season, so of course I'm doing a lot more party hopping than web-page-updating. . . but please check out the fantastic web page of my friend Christine--she writes the Indonesia Chronicles about her life abroad.
I have updated my writing page, adding a Travel Guide book I helped write.
I've started my list of favoritest-in-the-whole-world books. Though it's not completely organized yet, I'm making it a live link, since I haven't updated anything in so long . . . it will be fully in order shortly!
I have been neglecting the fantastic web page of my friend Christine --please check out the Indonesia Chronicles about her life abroad.

I have also recently redone the book club pages to an all new 21st century format.
I am writing from an Internet Cafe in Prague. (When I asked them to hook my laptop into their system, the guys at the counter called for help to a 14-year-old from the back who looked disgustedly at my Windows operating system and then, wordlessly, with lightning fingers, typed in all the right numbers and settings so my computer was compatible with their system.) The reason for this was so I could post information here about my travels in Prague, where I'm doing research for my next book. No photos up yet, but I will add some soon.
September 4, 2002
have just updated this website for the first time in about two years. Better
than that, I think I'm actually going to KEEP updating it regularly.
Lots more information about me than you ever wanted to know will soon be right on this very spot! In the meantime please buy my new book The Big Bang Theory, by clicking on the icon at left and help me earn royalties. . .
