Lorna Schultz Nicholson

Lorna Schultz Nicholson grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario and as a child loved to read and write, and participate in sports. Quite the combo! So she earned a B Sc. in Human Performance from the University of Victoria. With her degree she worked as the Fitness and Recreation Co-ordinator at UVic, where she also coached rowing. Over the years she has had many jobs, from hosting a radio show to co-hosting a fitness television show. But her passion was always in writing. Well, and sports too! To date, Lorna has published children’s picture books, (Puckster series), middle grade fiction, YA fiction, and non-fiction hockey books. Her books have been nominated for the OLA Forest of Reading Red Maple award, MYRCA award, Alberta Literary Guild award, Willow award(s) and Red Cedar award. A frequent presenter in schools, Lorna also speaks at writing workshops and conferences. Married with three adult children, Lorna lives with her husband, Bob, in Edmonton, Alberta. They spend their time working and living with the family pets – a cuddly but whiny bichon-shih tzu, and a quirky Mexican dog named Poncho. Yes, Lorna rescued him and brought him back on an airplane when he was an itty-bitty puppy so he could live in the cold climate!
