Gail Morton was born in New Denver, BC, and inspired by childhood adventures in the wilds of England and BC, Gail is passionate about bringing a fresh, fun, wonder-filled approach to writing and illustrating children's books about our relationship and responsibility to the natural world. After a career as a primary teacher, this comes naturally and joyfully.
Today inspiration comes from her home, shared with her husband, in Port Alberni, BC on Vancouver Island where Coho struggle upstream through their yard on a yearly mission to spawn. And from the nearby forests, streams, wild flora and fauna which nurture her and which she hopes to help preserve for children young and old. And from the Alberni Aquarium where she volunteers, teaching about marine life through story, song, and crafts. You can find Gail studying about sustainability, researching and drawing an intriguing plant, animal, or insect, discussing veggie and fruit gardening with her hubby, constantly finding fun, creative ways to change old habits toward a more healing lifestyle for the sake of our beautiful world and its inhabitants. Or, kayaking, hiking, riding her e-bike, with sketchpad and pencils as constant companions. Gail can't wait for you to join her on this amazing journey of discovery and transformation through her children's books.
