Kira Vermond

Kira received her first (friendly) rejection letter from a kids' magazine when she was 11, but that didn’t stop her from wanting to be a writer.
Today, she’s a busy author and journalist for adults, teens and kids with over 1,500 articles and four books published, including Silver Birch nominee Half-Truths and Brazen Lies: An Honest Look at Lying, the 2015 Norma Fleck Award for Canadian Children’s Non-Fiction winning Why We Live Where We Live, and Red Maple nominated The Secret Life of Money: A kid’s guide to cash and Growing Up, Inside and Out, plus a money book for grownups that some readers say changed their lives. So, that’s cool.
When she’s not writing, she’s whistling while she works, singing with the windows wide open and cooking tasty stuff. Oh. And drinking coffee. She likes to do that too.
Kira lives in Guelph, Ontario with her husband, a couple of fabulous kids and a dog named Marbles.
