Mark Gunning grew up in Chippawa, Ontario where he spent most of his youth playing outside with his friends. They had many fun adventures together and this has helped create some of the stories you have enjoyed today.
A teacher with the DSBN, Mark started his idea of writing children’s stories back in 2010 to share some of his stories with his students. It was in 2017 that he finally wrote his first book. He and his wife Stephanie, have three children, two cats, and two dogs named Ozzie and Chewie.
Andy Thomson grew up in Crystal Beach, Ontario. When he isn’t enjoying time with his family, he can be found playing guitar or drawing. Andy met Mark while working together at Peace Bridge Public School in Fort Erie, Ontario. This is Andy’s first time illustrating for an author and is very grateful to Mark for the opportunity to create the images for his characters.
