Nan Forler is a writer and a teacher who lives in a house overflowing with music and books. She likes to write stories at an old wooden table in her kitchen, and some of those stories are made into books.

Nan is especially excited about her new picture book, Trampoline Boy! Trampoline Boy invites the reader to embrace each person’s unique perspective in a happy celebration of the joy of jumping.

Nan has visited schools and festivals across Canada, to share the messages of kindness and empathy with her book, Bird Child. Her book of narrative poems, Winterberries and Apple Blossoms has been awarded the Nautilus Silver Medallion as well as being named the Lion and the Unicorn Award for Excellence in North American Poetry Honor Book.

Nan shares her home with her husband, her two children and a yorkie-poo named Alice.
