About the Author Karlie Schaphorst

My interest in writing started early, as did my interest in the natural world. After a particularly gripping science presentation by our local meteorologist in my second grade class, I knew that my future would consist of getting up close and personal with the natural phenomena. I found a passion in my AP Biology class for writing about biology and scientific advancements. That is what I hope to do in the future.
