Middle school student Gwendolyn is a dream-shifter. This means that when she dreams, she becomes what she dreams about, and she dreams about being different animals. If she awakens naturally, she becomes a girl again. But a fire alarm jars her awake when she’s dreaming that she’s an elk. She awakes as an elk. It’s elk hunting season, and she doesn’t know how to change back to a girl, or how to stay alive.

Lois is a former high school chemistry teacher and former head science teacher at Science in the City Summer Camp in Philadelphia. She has also been an adjunct science teacher at University of South Florida. Since retiring, she continues to take science classes. Her class in Forensic Biology led to Little Red, The Detective, in which Red is studying fingerprint identification, so she can tell that “Grandma” isn’t who she says she is.
Lois has taken so many science classes that she believes science is the solution to almost every problem, including the dilemmas in fairy tales. She has invented what she calls Science Folktales. In each science-based tale, the protagonist achieves a better ending than the original because of learning scientific principles. She has turned some of these tales into plays.
She has also created a series of Mermaid Science stories, which make use of water science.
Lois is married to the love of her life. She has two children, four grandchildren and a dog.
