I'm Bonnie Ferrante, a hybrid author. I was born in Northern Ontario, Canada. I grew up in a mill town of about 1000 people. I moved to Thunder Bay (on the north shore of Lake Superior) to attend university, got a job teaching after graduation and stayed. I love being a grandmother and am so grateful my son and his family live near by.
My short stories, newspaper articles and columns, and novels have been published traditionally beginning in my thirties. I was a grade school teacher for thirty-three years, ten of those as a teacher-librarian. Since retiring, I have begun simultaneously self-publishing novels and picture books and am doing my own illustrations. During the long cold winters, I spend most of my time reading, writing and drawing. Since developing Parkinson's Disease, I have switched from illustrating with acrylics and pencil crayon, to exploring methods of digital illustration I also have a blog where I talk about books (mostly for children), reading to/with children, parenting/families (both humorous and practical), writing tips, author interviews, and more.
