Check out this interview with Scientists in the Field author Mary Kay Carson over on author and librarian Jennifer Sommers’ website!  It gives some insight into the editing, researching, and writing process in general, as well as what went into making Mary Kay’s latest Scientists in the Field title, Inside Biosphere 2.

If you haven’t read this super-cool book that takes place inside a huge glass and steel structure in the middle of the Arizona desert, complete with its own ocean, rainforest, and other ecological systems, find it and read it now!
