Alison Pearce Stevens


I’m Alison Pearce Stevens. Thanks for stopping by my site!

As a writer for kids, I wear two hats—I’m a science writer by day and a spinner of tall nature and science tales by night (actually, in the wee hours of the morning—I’m an early bird). I’ve got lots of fun stuff here for kids, parents, and teachers. Click on any of the links above to find out more!

Represented by Alexandra Weiss, Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency.

THANK YOU, Lux Middle School!
I had a fabulous time talking to the sixth graders at Lux (again!). The students were attentive and asked great questions, and I had a blast talking research, writing, and cool science.  Thank you Mrs. Paulsen and the sixth grade team!

Book contract!
I can finally share the news! My non-fiction book, UNCOVERING ASHFALL, was just announced. It’s about rhinos and horses and camels (oh my!), a supervolcano, and the scientists who discovered it all. I am over the moon to be working with Laura Godwin on this new project.
