She's also the author of The Honeybee Man, a picture book about an urban beekeeper that takes place in her home borough of Brooklyn, New York and Above and Beyond, a middle grade companion book to the exhibit of the same name that originated at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, about the history and future of flight. Nargi is an avid fossil hunter who has found hundreds of fossilized shark teeth in Florida, insect and plant fossils high up in the Himalaya, and tiny fossilized shells in the middle of the Thar Desert in India. But she hasn't found any dinosaur fossils...yet!
