About MeI'm the author of many books for children. I love picturebooks but right now most of my books are novels for middle graders and teens, like LAST CHANCE ISLAND, + read more an adventure on a remote island off the coast of Ireland. I used to be a teacher librarian which was a terrific job. It combined my two favourite things in the world, kids and books. But after several years, I found I had to choose between teaching and writing. In the end, I chose writing, so that's what I do most days now, except when I'm travelling to do school and library visits which I really enjoy. I love talking to the people my books are aimed at and I always learn something new. Like last month in Ontario, I learnt that Kitchener's old name used to be Berlin and its motto was, "Keep Kitchener as clean as your kitchen." Show Less
