Product description

About the Author

About the Author - Eva Blaskovic does not like cold weather but has a fascination with it. The gas station scene in chapter 23 is real. Most Canadian children are warned not to touch metal playground structures in the winter with their tongues, but in Alberta, one cannot touch metal with bare hands at extremely low temperatures. Similarly, one must cover the top of the zipper on one’s jacket, or it can stick to the chin. Eva likes to test herself with physical feats during weather extremes, such as jogging at -30°C or +35°C in Alberta or spending time outdoors in Ontario’s 50°C humidex. As a teenager, she waded through hip-deep snow in the woods in Ontario to acquire “experience” to help her write her books. As a bonus, she nearly froze her legs up to the hips. To this day, she reads books about adventures in Canada’s North, from the historical quest for the Northwest Passage to realistic fiction about survival in the cold. As a teacher, she has studied Brian’s Winter (Gary Paulsen) and Far North (Will Hobbs) with her students. Another favourite book is With Scott to the Pole (retold by Howard Marshall), Captain Scott’s trek in the quest for the South Pole. Eva has a passion for music and numerous musical genres, has played eight instruments, and spent many years immersed in Taekwondo and Karate. As a youth in Ontario, she was an avid canoeist. Eva was born in Prague, Czech Republic, grew up in Ontario, Canada, and moved to Alberta in 1988, where she raised four children. Currently, Eva teaches at the Centre for Literacy, a specialized clinic in Edmonton, Alberta. She has regularly written and taught over 30 individualized lesson plans per week for students from grade one through university. Her multi-faceted background in the sciences and the arts allows her to teach both the math and language programs. She also mentors young authors. Eva is a multi-genre author of short and long fiction. She also writes articles about writing, travel, parenting, and education. In 2014, she received the Seal of Excellence for the Top 100 Certified Writers at Angie’s Diary Online Magazine (Netherlands). Website: www.evablaskovic.com Blog: www.evablaskovic.com/blog/
