Liz Moore told Something about the Author: "I began writing when we lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Two of my stories, a children's story and a work of adult short fiction, won the Atlantic Writing competition. I wrote a popular column in the local paper of the village where we lived, and later in the town we moved to in Ontario.

"My love of writing for children has led me to becoming a teacher. While I hope and plan to continue writing, I look forward to sharing the joy of discovery of works with future students."
