STEM anthology

“You lead by example, which inspires others.”


Hi, guys! Guess what? I’m part of an amazing anthology coming soon to you. I love encouraging girls to delight in their intelligence.
Fun fact: My short story gives a nod to Chinese mythology.

Today, I’m revealing the cover and story line-up for

Paige Daniels is the pen name of Tina Closser. By day she works as an Electrical Engineer and Mom mushing her kids from gymnastics and violin practice. After the kids go to bed, she rocks out with her headphones turned to eleven and cranks out books. She is an uber science geek. If she wasn’t married to the most terrific guy in the world, she would be a groupie for Adam Baldwin. Her books include Non-Compliance: The Sector, Non-Compliance: The Transition, and Non-Compliance: Equilibrium.

Mary Fan is a hopeless dreamer, whose mind insists on spinning tales of “what if.” As a music major in college, she told those stories through compositions. Now, she tells them through books—a habit she began as soon as she could pick up a pencil. And what stories she has! Currently, she has three series in progress and likes to think that she has even more in her bag. Her books include Starswept, the Jane Colt trilogy, the Firedragon novellas, and the Fated Stars novellas.

  1. Good job, Jennifer!

  2. What a wonderful idea! As the mother of a female engineer, I’m happy to see stories like this coming out for girls to read.

      Yes, I’m so proud to contribute. I remember growing up in classrooms where teachers told me that girls aren’t good at math :(
