Susan B's curiosity prompted her interest in science. The fact that she had a relative who was a NASA astronaut fueled her interest in astronomy, and her own curiosity about the astronaut life provided her with the perfect excuse to write about space life. Her interest in plants began during a high school horticulture class. Since that time, her interest has grown, and a desire to learn even more prompted her to challenge herself to explore all sorts of different plant-science related topics.
Susan is also interested in violent weather phenomenon, and a desire to learn about how tornadoes and hurricanes develop prompted her to explore these subjects in writing. She believes that if people understand how these violent storms form, they will take them more seriously, and take the necessary precautions to protect themselves or prepare for them.
