Join us this week to meet Marie Prins. Marie is a remedial reading teacher with her own practice, The Reading Room. She lives with her artist husband in an historic, octagonal home in Colborne. She writes memoir, poetry, and children’s books, including a mid-grade novel The Girl from the Attic which was the Uncommon Quest 2019 Silver Award winner from Common Deer Press and is to be released by them in October. Currently Marie is a participant in the 12×12 Challenge to write 12 picture books in 12 months, which is harder than she anticipated. She is a member of Hill Spirits Writers Group (and contributor to their anthologies), Canscaip, and SCBWI East Canada.
