Research Notes
“This is the first time I’ve written a book about lightning, so I learned a lot during the research process. I really appreciate all the help scientists gave me in understanding the most up-to-date findings. I also enjoyed interviewing a variety of people who had experienced lightning strikes up close and personal for the I Was There features in the book. But my favorite part of the project was working with my editor to create the dynamic horizontal gatefolds that truly take you Inside Lightning.
