Hello! I’m Elizabeth Pagel-Hogan.

I’m the author of books and stories for young and young-at-heart readers. My stories inspire readers to have hope, take action, and laugh.

In addition to my books, I’ve written textbooks, atlases, and online educational content. I also love creating crafts, stories, and recipes for numerous magazines, including Highlights for Children.

I have my MA in American History, with a certificate in Women’s Studies. I have a BA in History and BS in Biology. I love writing about history and science, especially nature and the environment. And sports. And baking. (The list goes on!)

I’m the Regional Advisor for SCBWI Pennsylvania: West. I was the 2016-2017 Fellow for Pen Parentis. I won an SCBWI Merit Award for my nonfiction magazine article “Hands On: Your Life As Art” in 2020. I’m proud to be represented by Miranda Paul from Erin Murphy Literary Agency.

I live in Pittsburgh, PA, with my family and our schnoodle. I’m a birder, a community scientist, a runner, a board game fan, and I love baking desserts.
