A.C.E. BAUER has been telling stories ever since she could talk (some were real whoppers). After learning how to write, she began handing them out as gifts to her family.

She has returned to fiction and now writes for children of all ages. Born and raised in Montreal, she spends most of the year in Connecticut, but returns to Canada whenever she can.
