Author's Bio

Heather Catchpole is an artist and a poet, but her favourite occupation is writing about science because it involves learning about the amazing way the world, and the universe, work. Originally from Canberra, Vanessa Woods has spent time in the jungle in Costa Rica chasing monkeys and filming short segments for the Disney Channel on weird, quirky, and amazing animals all over the world. Vanessa has written articles for various magazines and was recently Communications Coordinator for Discovery Networks before moving to Germany to work as the PR Director for a chimpanzee research group. This is the second It's True! book that Heather and Vanessa have written.
