Alex Van Tol Author / Speaker http://www.alexvantol.com
About MeI write fiction and nonfiction for kids and teens. Many of my books in the Orca Soundings and Orca Currents series deal with current youth-related issues such as parent/child relations, anxiety, social media, drugs, sexual health and risk-taking. My latest work of nonfiction, Aliens Among Us: Invasive Animals and Plants in British Columbia, is the first children's publication in the history of the Royal BC Museum, and is one of the museum's top sellers.

A former middle-grade teacher, I now travel to schools and speak with student audiences about themes that relate to my books, with a special emphasis on the topics of:

1. Anxiety — covers outcomes in Grade 10 Career Education/Planning and secondary Physical Education;
2. Social media/digital citizenship — touches on outcomes in personal responsibility and digital citizenship at all levels;
3. Invasive species and biodiversity — covers Science outcomes in every grade from K-12.

My presentations are interactive, lively and packed with information for students to take away. Teachers often tell me that while kids are sometimes deaf to the Big Messages their teachers and parents try to communicate, they'll often "hear" those messages from me, because of my special way of connecting with young people.

About MeI have a background in science and art. I am currently based in my hometown of Vancouver, BC, where I am completing my MA in Children's Literature at UBC. However, I love to travel and explore and I've been lucky enough to have lived, worked, and studied in many places beyond the west coast, including Toronto, Ottawa, England, Finland, and Japan. I'm thrilled to be following my passion for children's literature!

Caroline Woodward Author / Speaker http://www.carolinewoodward.ca
About MeI grew up on a Peace River homestead, attended high school while staying in a dormitory in Fort St. John and went on to UBC to earn a B.A. and Teacher's Certificate. I have worked, studied and travelled in Canada, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Europe, and the UK, serving as a volunteer in Sri Lanka with Canadian Crossroads International and as a group leader with Canada World Youth to Sri Lanka and India. I then earned a Diploma in Creative Writing from David Thompson University Centre in Nelson.

My writing career (i.e., paid work) began with a weekly column in the Alaska Highway News for two years while still in high school and since then, I've published poetry, non-fiction essays and journalism, short and long fiction, stage and radio plays, and children's literature. So far I've published nine books and I am at work on two more children's books for my publisher.

After working a great variety of white, pink and blue collar jobs, I am now writing nearly full-time while working shifts as the assistant lightkeeper at the Lennard Island Lightstation near Tofino.
