Angela King-Harris Author / Illustrator http://www.angelakingharris.com
About Me
I was born in England, moved to Newfoundland in my twenties and then moved againin my forties to Victoria BC, where I am very happily settled.
Like many people I have had an eclectic career path, one that has led me from teacher to architectural technician, book designer, illustrator, artist and now new author of a fantasy adventure book for 8 - 12 year olds.
I am a firm believer in the enduring power of imagination and creativity, and I'm very happy that "Finding the Time for Dragons" has found its way into so many children's lives. Most people ask me if it is illustrated, it isn't, but the cover art is mine.
Now retired, I am usually found in my studio, busy writing a sequel, while continuing to paint and draw as the spirit moves.

Della Burford Author / Illustrator / Speaker http://www.dellaburford.com
About MeI facilitate art & writing Virtual workshops - including Zoom -around my books. I integrate creative writing, art and storytelling, in sharing my paintings and books. It culminates in a celebration and showcase of the work done. This has been young authors/illustrators conferences or art shows.

"Dodoland"​ emphasized Imagination,"Magical Earth Secrets"​- environment, "Miracle Galaxy"​- healing & angels, Dream Wheels"​ - dreams including a 40-year history of my dreams which have been manifested. Plays of my books have performed at the Museum of Natural History, B.A.M., Smithsonian, 3rd St. Music School, hospitals ( Sloan Kettering, Metropolitan Hospital and Children's Hospital), and schools. They were performing for 7 years in N.Y.C. I also personally storytell my books and have workshops on both writing and art tailored to individual groups. My paintings/stories have been story told and workshopped in Canada, U.S.A., Guatemala, Mexico, England, Holland, Austria, Korea, Japan & Bali. In 1979 6,000 copies of Dodoland were gifted to needy children and in 2020 6,000 digital copies were gifted of the book I illustrated with writer Aaron Zerah. In 1995 an ezine was created called Dodoland on the internet and has had two million people visit it.

In surviving a health crisis I created "Miracle Galaxy"- a story of healing with eight angels who help those in crisis. All the Angels represent the chakras of the body and the goal is to create health ,happiness and healing. My latest two stories, "Dream Gifts for the Planet Earth" and "Star Galaxy for the World' have many messages for this challenging time we are going thru now with the Pandemic. The Miracle Galaxy is being performed in May of 2021 in Japan. The Environment Activity Guide is presently being re-edited and looking for distribution ideas.

I have led workshops in hundreds of different schools through the Inner City Angels in Toronto & 14 grants with the Ontario Arts Council. I later was in Art Residency program for Vancouver Schools and in Nanaimo.

Glen Huser Author / Illustrator / Speaker http://www.glenhuser.com
About MeIf there is anything better than a life immersed in literature, I’m not sure what it is. My early love of reading and drawing led me to pursue a career as a teacher-librarian, artist, and an author of books for readers of all ages. In Edmonton I developed a magazine (“Magpie”) of children’s writing and illustrations and was writer-in-residence at a number of the city’s schools. Winning a Governor-General’s Award for my young adult novel Stitches opened many doors. I have lived in Vancouver since 2004 where I’ve continued to visit schools, conduct workshops, and create books for children and young adults. Recently I have been writing the text and lyrics for a series of picture books (packaged with a CD featuring a massed chorus of 200 Montreal schoolchildren) retelling familiar Greek myths.
