Who Gives a Poop
Something Rotten

Heather Montgomery

Heather L. Montgomery writes for kids who are wild about animals. The weirder, the wackier, the better. An award-winning science educator, Heather uses yuck appeal to engage young minds. During presentations, petrified animal parts and tree guts inspire reluctant readers and motivate reticent writers.  


Heather has a BS in biology and an MS in environmental education, she lives on the border of Alabama and Tennesse, and she has published over a dozen nonfiction books.  


Roadkill changed her life.
