Carolyn is a writer, whose book Common Insects of Nunavut was published in December 2011. It is a follow up to her popular Common Plants of Nunavut, co-written with Susan Aiken. She is hard at work on a novel and hopes that her picture book will be out this year. Carolyn is lucky enough to travel with Adventure Canada in the summer, working as resource staff on a ship in the Canadian Arctic. She lives in Nova Scotia with a houseful of animals.
