Theanne Griffith, Ph.D.

Neuroscientist and Children’s Book Writer


I always write from an #OwnVoices point of view with young people of color, who are scientists or interested in STEM-related topics, as my protagonists.

I recently sold the first three books of a STEM-themed chapter book series to Random House Children’s Books! The Magnificent Makers will be published in the summer/fall of 2020. More details coming soon!

I am represented by Liza Fleissig of the Liza Royce Agency.

We look at science as something very elite, which only a few people can learn. That’s just not true. You just have to start early and give kids a foundation. Kids live up, or down, to expectations.
