Jean E. Pendziwol is an award winning Canadian author. Born and raised in northwestern Ontario, she draws on the culture, history and geography of the region for inspiration for her stories.
The Lightkeeper's Daughters is Jean's debut adult novel, an affecting story of family, identity, and art that involves a decades-old mystery. Vividly drawn, Lake Superior is almost a character in itself, changeable yet constant, its shores providing both safety and isolation.
Jean's writing career began with the publication of No Dragons for Tea: Fire Safety for Kids (and Dragons) In this rhyming picture book, she set out to provide an entertaining, engaging, and accessible way to convey important safety information to children. It inspired three more books featuring the bumbling dragon, covering topics including water safety, stranger safety, and bullying.
