Brave New Girls: Stories of Girls Who Science and Scheme is out today!

I'm thrilled to announce the release of our second Brave New Girls anthology, BRAVE NEW GIRLS: STORIES OF GIRLS WHO SCIENCE AND SCHEME! This collection contains 22 original short stories about tech-savvy young heroines who use their smarts to save the day in sci-fi universes. And I edited EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. We've got a great mix of tales ranging from space adventures to steampunk mysteries and more! Plus my own sci-fi mystery, "The Case of the Missing Sherlock," starring teen biomedical engineer Chevonne Watson. When Chevonne's AI best friend, Sherlock, vanishes while on a case, Chevonne uses her science smarts to solve the mystery. In my mind, that's Chevonne on the cover ;-)

Each story features its own illustration from one of our 14 talented artists. Proceeds from sales will be donated to the Society of Women Engineers scholarship fund. Find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and more.

Dive into a universe of sci-fi wonders.

This collection of sci-fi shorts features a variety of brainy young heroines—girls who engineer, tinker, experiment, and more. Voyage to far-off galaxies with girls who use their science savvy to fix rovers, rescue friends, and protect alien critters. Visit steampunk realms where young ladies put their skills to the test building mechanical wonders and solving mysteries. Trek across sci-fi landscapes with girls who save androids and repair robots. Journey to post-apocalyptic futures where heroines use their tech know-how to bring down overlords and spread the most dangerous thing of all… knowledge. And drop in on a few near-future heroines who use their smarts to take down supervillains and bring a little more understanding into the world.

Proceeds from sales of this anthology will be donated to a scholarship fund through the Society of Women Engineers. Let’s show today’s girls that they, too, can betomorrow’s inventors, programmers, scientists, and more.
