Alice Hanov has been dreaming up stories since she was seven, only recently deciding to commit them to paper after enthralling her children for years with wild tales of sorcerers and fearless girls who take on the world. She graduated from the University of Waterloo with a degree in rhetoric and professional writing. When she's not writing or reading, Alice runs a software company or can be found painting, knitting, and chasing after her super busy artistic children. Alice lives in Ontario with her husband of over fifteen years and their three kids.
