Judith Silverthorne, a multiple-award winning author, has published eight children's novels as well as two non-fiction books for adults. She has lived most of her life in Saskatchewan, exploring its history and revelling in the natural beauty of the prairie landscape, which provides inspiration for many of her books. Judith has always been curious about supernatural phenomena and is particularly fascinated with Government House and the spirits said to be in residence there. She consulted with former and present staff as well as psychics, listening to their reports about the strange happenings they had experienced. She combined some of these stories with her imagination to write Ghosts of Government House.
