hi im rebecca sm.jpg

I write for children, teens, and the occasional grown-up.

I write non-fiction, mostly, on a variety of subjects including social and environmental justice, teen activism, travel and culture, media literacy, crafting with children, history, and the writing process.

I’ve written for Teen Vogue, Highlights’ High Five magazineCricket Media’s FACES magazine, The Writer magazine, Writer’s Digest’s Writer’s Market, And North, and elsewhere. My arts & crafts projects have been featured in the Martha Stewart American Made Market, Country Living, and Cool Mom Picks.

I studied the history of art and architecture at Boston University, earned a Master of Library Science and Archival Administration at Simmons University, and worked for over a decade in museums, libraries, and archives before shifting to writing and creative projects.

I’ve got a thing for picture books, comics, public libraries, and digging into the archives of female movers and shakers. I live in the lower Hudson Valley with husband and co-collaborators.
