I was born in Blacksburg, a once sleepy college town in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. I grew up thinking I wanted to be a veterinarian; organic chemistry had other ideas. But I always had stories in my head. Eventually, after a few degrees and few cool jobs—including a 10-year stint at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center—I wrote some of those stories down.

I'm the author of several young adult novels, including MEMENTO NORA, THE FORGETTING CURVE, and THE MEME PLAGUE. I’ve also published many short stories, for both adults and teens.

You can also catch me blogging as part of the LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY WRITERS (leaguewriters.blogspot.com).

Several of my new nonfiction books are available (at least on Amazon) for pre-order. How it Works:  the Internet  Exciting Engineering Activities (Curious Scientists) Mind-Blowing Physical Science Activities (Curious Scientists) They don’t ship until August, though. :0

“I like things to be what they're going to be. Not what they were. Or could have been.”
Angie Smibert, Memento Nora

“If you can't open it, you don't really own it.”
Angie Smibert, Memento Nora

“Ten minutes later the kid came out trailing his mother. She hurried out the door. He stuck out his tongue at me. Loser, I thought, until I saw the white pill sitting on his pink tongue. He coughed into his hand, then mouthed the word remember, tapping his cast, and tossed the pill into the trash can.
I watched him leave.

He wasn’t glossy. He wasn’t dreary, either. He was something else.

He was all there.”
Angie Smibert, Memento Nora
