Hi!

I’m a children’s author, editor and freelance journalist and I live in Toronto, Ontario.

I’ve written two middle-grade novels about baseball, and three picture books:

    • Sliding Home (2018, Lorimer)
    • Tagged Out (2016, Lorimer)
      • Gabby (2013, Fitzhenry & Whiteside, illustrated by Jan Dolby)
    • Gabby: Wonder Girl (2016)
  • Gabby: Drama Queen (2013)

I am also co-founder of the website Teaching Kids News (www.teachingkidsnews.com), which offers free daily kid-friendly news, and I talk to kids about “how to avoid fake news.”

I’m passionate advocate of children’s literacy through my blog Getting Kids Reading (www.gkreading.com).

Follow me on Twitter @JGCanada and @teachkidsnews.

  1. It was fun meeting you yesterday. Anyone who Olivia loves is on my A list. So now that I have googled you and recovered from 2 games at Field of Dreams, I can appreciate the way your life has travelled and the way you have travelled your life. Blessings for the future.
