Spring Cooper is a social researcher with academic qualifications in public health, health promotion, and sexuality. She has taught both health promotion and sexuality classes to postgraduate students. Her PhD focused on the sexual health education implications of menstrual attitudes and knowledge among women of varying socio-economic status in the United States. Her current research interests are in adolescent sexual health, health promotion, health communication, and prevention of disease through behavior change and vaccination. This is her first children's book, and she hopes that it will be helpful in stopping secret periods everywhere!
