Anita Daher has been entrenched in the book publishing industry since 1995, writing middle grade and teen novels, including Spider's Song, Two Foot Punch and Racing for Diamonds. Living in an ADHD dominated household has influenced the stories she writes, and her presentations, which are geared toward captivating those who are "attention different." In 2007 she received the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Author. Aside from short stints as grave-plot seller, tour guide, and children's party clown, she's worked in aviation, publishing, and broadcasting. When not word wrangling she enjoys inhabiting characters on stage and screen, and most recently completed a role in the DreamWorks film, A Dog's Purpose. Anita is also a member of the Crosseyed Rascals clean improvised comedy troupe.
