Freelance science writer and editor, Kendall Powell covers the realm of biology, from molecules to maternity. She jumped from the lab bench to laptop via the UC, Santa Cruz Science Communication program in 2002. She has written news stories, features and scientist profiles for a variety of publications including the Los Angeles Times, Nature (including Nature Careers), PLoS Biology, Journal of Cell Biology, Science Careers and the HHMI Bulletin. In 2005, Powell founded SciLance, an online community of science writers, as a way to stay connected to colleagues who are as much word nerds as science geeks. Together, the group wrote The Science Writers' Handbook: Everything You Need to Know to Pitch, Publish, and Prosper in the Digital Age, published by Da Capo Press in April 2013. She lives near Denver, Colorado with her scientist-husband, daughter, son, and two Labradors.
