About the authors

Lisa started writing for Reader's Digest and freelancing for several newspapers. Later, she wrote extensively on issues related to literacy and health that were featured in publications by the Canadian Public Health Association, several literacy organizations, and hospitals across Canada. She is a recipient of the CIBC Children's Miracle Maker Award for advancing literacy among people with special needs. Ten years ago, Lisa began writing for children covering subjects from climate change to refugees. Her belief that "storytellers often sugar coat real issues and present subjects to kids that are too far from reality in order to protect them. Just tell it the way it is. Kids appreciate authentic stories that are honest and real." Recently, she has been focussing her attention on poetry and historical fiction. Her work has been widely recognized throughout Canada and the U.S
