Zion is author of The Ultimate Guide to Green Parenting and Contributing Editor of JUNO Magazine. She writes for a living, mostly on topics relating to science, the environment, and parenting. Zion is currently studying for an MSc and blogs at Science Mum: From the Soil to the Stars, Eco Kids Planet, and The Huffington Post.
Zion lives in Devon with her two daughters and two tortoises. She loves hiking, astronomy, fossil hunting, archery, reading, and various geeky things including anything to do with Lord of the Rings. Memorable moments from the past year include seeing the Ring Nebula for the first time through her telescope (the most distant object she has seen so far) and meeting astronaut Chris Hadfield. Zion is most inspired by artists, especially the late writer Maya Angelou, who helped to shape her childhood through her works, and David Bowie whose creativity never failed to inspire her.
You can contact Zion via Facebook or Twitter, which she updates when she’s not wrestling small children. She cannot promise not to quote Tolkien in her replies.
