I am the author of a sea otter adventure tale and historical fiction for young readers. Believe it or not, researching for children's books can be fun!


On my journey I've discovered fascinating details about sea otters and the ocean, the Empress of Ireland steamship, Finnish immigrants, tuberculosis sanatoriums, and spies, sabotage, and paranoia during the First World War.
