Lauren Prescott’s family secrets were buried long before she was born, during the sixties era when her great-grandparents took in a runaway girl from an Indian residential school. Her ailing grandfather, who was a teenager back then, now longs to find the girl—Rose Hill—to right a wrong before he dies. He’s ashamed of how he treated her because he recoiled from the racist climate of colonialism of the time. Haunted by the past, Lauren risks everything to go after the truth for her grandfather—even her life!

BIOGRAPHY When teaching full time, I used my experiences in elementary classrooms to write junior and young adult fiction for reluctant readers, especially teen boys. They liked my Northview Tales Series along with the other books that followed as each contains sports, adventure and coming-of-age themes with an element of danger.
My characters are composites of the many students I taught, from the "weirdo" to the "brain" to the "jock." Teachers from across Canada (and in some regions of the States, too) continue to tell me their students recognize themselves in the stories and are eager to read the books.
More recently, I've been writing a teen/ teacher blog, teaching a creative writing course for adults, and have teamed up with my husband, Dan, to create contemporary adult fiction that has both mystery and romance.
It has been a lot of fun!
