ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Liz Muir’s first published story  was in Child Life when she was 10.  It was about the marsh hens that lived in the swamp in front of their Ottawa Valley farm home. The magazine sent her $1.  Since then, she has published non-fiction stories in magazines in Canada, the United States, Australia and Great Britain. And recently, she has written non-fiction books for adults. But her goal is to write children’s books and her first three picture books have recently been published – Air-Crazy, Fascinating Stories of Canadian Women in the Air, Libres Comme L'air and Air-Crazy Too.

When she’s not writing, she’s an active volunteer with the Royal Ontario Museum, having headed the 600-strong volunteer contingent at the ROM and the international travel program there, ROMtravel. She likes gardening – her backyard was featured one year on Toronto’s “Secret Gardens” tours – she sails in summer and plays badminton in the winter when she’s not baby-sitting her three young grandkids.

And she gives thanks for her two adult children who often dig her out of trouble in computer land.
