Laura Scandiffio was born in Germany but grew up in Ottawa. As a child, she loved reading, drawing, and painting. She and her friends put on plays and created make-believe games in which they could pretend to be someone else. All this imagination came out in the stories Laura wrote when she was young. She has been writing ever since.
Today, Laura lives in an old house in Toronto with her husband and their two children. When not being a mom (and, sometimes, while being a mom!) she spends her time reading and writing books. She loves traveling and talking to people—kids and adults—to gather new ideas. (Annick Press)
