Thursday Twitter Takeover: Robin Stevens Payes

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author Robin Stevens Payes will be taking over our Twitter account.

Robin Stevens Payes is firing up a love for science with the second book in her thrilling Edge of Yesterday science fiction series, DaVinci’s Way.

The books are designed to open the minds of middle-grade readers to the adventure of learning about STEM/STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) through storytelling.

Meeting Leonardo da Vinci in person isn’t your average middle-schooler’s dream science fair project. But Charley Morton isn’t your typical eighth-grader. Charley is mad about STEM, including science and math and, with her best bud Billy Vicenzo, she’s set on doing the impossible — finding da Vinci’s plans for a time machine and traveling back 500 years to meet her idol.
