Orysia Dawydiak has always been fascinated with human and animal behaviour. She lives on a Prince Edward Island farm where she has raised Shetland sheep and Akbash Dogs for many years, and wrote an award-winning book on livestock protection dogs. Her books for young readers range from <i>Rika's Shepherd</i>, about life on a sheep farm to the Kira series of coastal fishing communities where the possibilities of alternate life forms become real. Her middle grade fiction novel, <i>Kira's Secret</i> was short-listed for the Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award and was followed by <i>Kira's Quest</i>. <i>Kira's Pendright</i> continues the story five years later.
