About the Author

About Janice Garden Macdonald (me)

I'm a Canadian mother and grandmother with a passion for writing. I've been lucky enough to receive a number of awards in different genres including the Zoetrope short fiction award and the Moondance Film Festival award for an animated screenplay.

I'm a grateful recipient of a Canada Council Grant for my efforts in the short story genre.

Years ago, I was the happy owner of a modest bookstore, where I spent endless hours reading on the slow days, (of which there were far too many), and writing my own stories on the other slow days!

I love to entertain children and I believe there is nothing so fine as a book that can make you smile.
