Genome Art and Science Storytelling Books
“We Want Our Genome Story” digital book
Coming soon. ”We Want Our Genome Story” is my current project. It’s a digital book that will be available from Apple Books in 2021. You can peek inside now to view the illustration and narrative style. It’s my true story as a Genome Explorer (I have my data) and Storm Chaser (cancer survivor) told with genome art and science storytelling grounded in science.
It’s interactive. Hop around and discover the science behind the story that lets you go deeper. You’ll meet my avatar, “Artist,” in the illustrated scenes in the narrative. Tap the links that lead the backstory — interviews, podcasts, scientific papers, and answers to Artist’s many questions.
Not just for kids! The journey of exploring our genome is one we all share. As members of the first generation to have our DNA data, we are a vanguard of genome explorers. With easy-to-understand content for humans of any age, you’ll learn how fantastic our genome stories can be.

“Skin We Are In”
A book about the evolution of human skin color
“Skin We Are In,” tells the story of the evolution of human skin color through the eyes and voices of curious children and one thoughtful uncle. It celebrates the “glorious human rainbow” as an illustrated story with explanations of the science.
The book is a collaborative endeavor by South African writer Sindiwe Magona, American anthropologist Dr. Nina Jablonski, and me. Nina initiated the project and wrote the science text, Sindiwe wrote the story, and I illustrated and designed the book. Created for young people, 9 to 14 years old, it’s available in all eleven official languages of South Africa. Buy from Amazon.
