JACQUELINE HALSEY was born in London, England. After several globe-trotting years she and her family discovered Nova Scotia and they have lived there ever since.

She is also the author of Peggy's Letters, a Canadian Children's Book Centre "Our Choice" starred selection, and nominated for both the Hackmatack Children's Choice Award and the Rocky Mountain Children's Book Award and an Honour Book in Ontario's Silver Birch Express Awards. She is also the author of the celebrated Bluenose Adventure, a tale of the experiences of a ten-year-old "flunky" working aboard the fishing schooner Bluenose.

LORETTA MIGANI is an artist living in Nova Scotia. Born in Southport, England, she attended Queensland College of Art in Australia. Loretta works primarily in oils and sculpture. This is her first book.
