ELLE ANDRA - WARNER
Elle Andra-Warner (BAí97) has published four books including: Robert Service: A Great Canadian Poet's Romance with the North; The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald; Hudsonís Bay Company: The Rollicking Saga of Canadaís Fur Traders; and The Mounties, Tales of Adventure and Danger from the Early Days.
"Ever since I was a young child, Iíve always wanted to be an author with published books," she says.
"Ten years ago I started my way toward that goal and last year, the childhood dream became a reality when my first national book was published. Thereís an adrenaline high when you walk into bookstores across Canada and see your book on the shelves. And I feel like Iím just getting started."
Andra-Warner is working on her fifth book for Altitude Publishing on the shipwrecks of the Great Lakes, and a book on Sir John Sparrow Thompson (1845-1894), for Jackfruit Press, in a new children's book series on the Prime Ministers of Canada.
Margie Taylorís latest novel, Displaced Persons, is based on the true story of an unsolved murder/suicide that took place on the shores of Lake Superior in the late '70s. Suspenseful and intelligent, the book captures the essence of people who are constantly searching for the truth and a sense of belonging.
Margie Taylor (HBAí72) is the former host of CBC's Wild Rose Country, The Eyeopener, and The Homestretch in Alberta, as well as the producer and host of numerous CBC radio shows in Vancouver. The book is published by NeWest Press in Alberta.
