I grew up in Ottawa in a bilingual (French and English) family obsessed with writing, communication, social justice - and airplanes. Since then I've gotten history degrees from McGill (Montreal) and the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) and spent time in Edmonton, England, Wyoming, and the Yukon.

I now make Southwest Houston, TX my home. When I'm not researching and writing, I spend my time running after my young son and dog and relaxing with my husband and cat.

I love storytelling of all kinds and my current projects include a picture book called Alis the Aviator (forthcoming from Tundra Books in 2019), a novel, and a creative nonfiction book around the Camsell Hospital.

Hi Liz,

Thanks for your question! Yes, I really tried to include women's stories as much as possible so have anecdotes and info on pioneers like Dawn Connelly (Bartsch), Judy Cameron, Lorna de Blicquy, Rosella Bjornson, and lots more. I also highlighted women business partners, flight attendants, ground agents, and others in important positions outside the cockpit.

I'm looking forward to your new book next year! In addition to the female aviators here on earth, I got to meet Roberta Bondar in September and am a huge fan of Julie Payette! I'm sure the Women in Aviation and Elsie MacGill Foundation folks (and Canadian Aviation Historical Society) will be interested in your book.

Cheers,
Danielle(less)
