About Me

Sarah MacLean

Scientist, fantasy nerd, digital illustrator, and baker of anatomically accurate bird sugar cookies.

Sarah’s academic training is in ecology, earning her BS in Natural Resources at Cornell University and a PhD in Environmental Science at UC Berkeley. Her current passion is for all things communication. Since 2019, she’s taught a course in science writing and communication at the California Institute of Technology, including a focus on how creative writing techniques can be used to improve the readability and engagement of science writing and outreach. She’s especially excited to draw on her background in biology to create fantasy worlds that are living and breathing in addition to colorful and diverse.
