A teacher by profession, Wren Blackberry worked in higher education in the United States from 1985.

The Métrico Mesh Series[edit]

The protagonists in this series are American Portuguese pre-teens, residing in a coastal town of southern Massachusetts. While the original text is in English, the characters do not neglect to scatter in Portuguese phrases and customs.

The books appear Judeo-Christian, with solely Christian references only in Anything But Static, which parallels the New Testament conversion of the apostle Paul; the series is directed toward independent middle readers, throwing in challenging words similar to terms students would learn at school.

In the back of each book, the author suggests projects for further study of topics, helping teachers and home schoolers integrate their course content.
