Vicki Wittenstein writes nonfiction for children and young adults, helping educators address requirements of the Common Core Standards. In addition to many magazine articles, she is the author of Planet Hunter, about Geoff Marcy’s search for Earth-like planets; and the new For the Good of Mankind, which covers the sometimes sordid history of medical Experimentation. Her old site had grown cluttered and disorganized, and was too focussed on her first book. She needed something inviting to all ages, easy to navigate, and more appropriate for books that cover a wide array of subject matter.
