Alexandra Kopstals has spent the last few years embodying Tolkien’s theory that, “not all who wander are lost.” She has trekked the Andes, survived a hurricane, dogsledded through Algonquin Park, performed at Roy Thompson Hall, and spent a year in London perfecting the perfect cup of tea. When she’s not spinning those adventures into stories or newspaper articles, she can usually be found on the water, baking, or playing with her rambunctious collie, Baelfire. Hailing from Aurora, Ontario, she is an alumnus of Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, and the University of London, Goldsmith’s College in England. Her debut middle grade novel, Dust Buffaloes, is currently on offer.
