Maggie Lafreniere

Maggie Lafreniere is a Canadian writer of novels for young people, with the middle grade audience being her favourite. She holds a master’s degree in engineering, and has had the opportunity to work on everything from Formula One race cars, to planes and Mars rovers. Her stories are packed with humour and heart, and she suspects her love of writing grounded science fiction is inspired by her career (though it may be the other way around). Maggie has lived in both Canada and the UK, but these days home is in Waterdown, Ontario, with her husband and their two boys.
