Lucy Chronic

Growing up the daughter of two Ph.D.s in geology, young LUCY CHRONIC was more likely to hear discussions of plate tectonics than the prospects of the local ball team's chance of winning the pennant. Throughout her life, she has pursued interests in natural history, biology, and archaeology, but the family pull toward geology eventually won out with her B.A. in geology from Carleton College and an M.S. in paleontology from the University of Wyoming.
Her professional life has remained eclectic, with writing and scientific interpretation being the threads that tie her various pursuits together. She has worked as an archeologist, educational writer, scientific writer, and interpreter in state and national parks.

She resides in the mountains of central Idaho with her husband and two daughters, enjoying the wonders of our natural world.
