At 14 years old, Justin Scott Parr ventured with his middle-school class to Washington, D.C. The capital city’s monuments, museums, and rich history instantly sparked his desire to explore the world.
Eighteen years later, Justin embarked on a journey to fulfill a lifelong goal that most people only dream of. After quitting his job with a Fortune 500 company, he grabbed his passport and spent the next six months backpacking across 11 Latin-American countries. He chronicled his voyage through photos and a travel blog. Upon returning home, he shared tales of magnificent adventures with his 8-year-old cousin, Destiny.
Destiny’s curiosity about the cultural, historical, and educational aspects of his trip—and her countless “what-ifs” — ultimately led to the creation of the new book series featuring Sage Carrington, a 12-year-old science sleuth.
