    1. Gillian Richardson became a world traveler at three months of age when she emigrated from England to Canada with her parents and older sister After living briefly in Vancouver and Montreal, the family settled in southern Ontario Books can be best friends to shy kids, and they opened up the world of reading for Gillian It turned out to be the perfect foundation for a future writer Her favorite books were about animals, like the Thornton Burgess series of animal adventures One day, I found a cocoon and took it home It hatched into hundreds of praying mantis babies They were everywhere That experience later inspired a picture book, recalls Gillian Gillian graduated from McMaster University and St Catharine s Teachers College Brock University After a summer course for elementary school teacher librarians, she found teaching positions in Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan As an adult, her interest in nature really bloomed With so much to discover in the PEI countryside around her home, it was natural to begin writing I had worked as a teacher librarian for almost eight years when I began to wonder if my own writing skills could match those of the children s authors I encouraged my students to read, says Gillian A move to the prairies in 1982 gave her the chance to try writing seriously, which she did while working until 1997 in school libraries in Regina She has been teaching writing to adults as an instructor for the Institute of Children s Literature Connecticut since 2002 She is a co founder of the Saskatchewan Children s Writers Round Robin, a critique group that celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2009 During that time, she wrote sixteen books, and many short stories and articles for children s magazines Since 1999, she has reviewed children s books for CM, an online periodical The review of an Annick Press book led to an invitation to write Kaboom Explosions of all Kinds 2009 When I heard the topic would be explosions, I wondered how it might fit with my experiences of writing about nature In fact, there were many links, from geysers to decomposition, from exploding seed pods to avalanche control Gillian had already developed a fascination with volcanoes after visiting two in Costa Rica, and Mount St Helens in Washington to see the aftermath of an eruption first hand Between drafts of Kaboom , she peered into steam vents at Hawaii s Kilauea Thinking back to university days when I opted to study languages most useful for a wordsmith , I wish science and environmental topics had also been on my list But I ve found that experiencing nature, and reading and writing about it, are great ways to learn, and to share Write about what stirs your curiosity Gillian joined the Regina Natural History Society to find out about local wildlife when she lived on the prairies She now enjoys hikes and the annual Christmas Bird Count as an active member of the Shuswap Naturalist Club She s still traveling, too From her home near Sorrento, B.C she and her husband regularly explore the province and northwestern states in their RV.
