Hi, I’m Amy Hansen

My job is to investigate every day mysteries. Where do bugs go? How do refrigerators work? I get to ask lots of questions and read a lot, then I write. I also visit classrooms, camps and libraries, talking about writing and researching. It is a very cool job.

Cicadas are a short-lived, loud insect that show up every 17 years. I asked what would happen if they wanted more from life than just making noise. My short play was produced by College Park Arts Exchange.
