Susan J. Crockford

Biography

Being from a storytelling family pays off: if you hear stories often enough, you find you can tell them too. Susan J. Crockford is a professional zoologist who has studied polar bear ecology and evolution for more than 20 years and has a special interest in the history of human-polar bear interactions. She has a Ph.D. and writes a blog about polar bears called PolarBearScience. After years of writing scientific papers and books and blogging about polar bears for non-scientists, Susan wrote her first novel in 2015—for readers who prefer their science “lite” and love a good story.

For 2017, Susan has produced two short polar bear science books: one detailed volume for adults and high-school students and another suitable for children aged 7 and up. These books take a sensible, big-picture approach that many readers will appreciate and are based on the most up-to-date information available.
