Barbara Haworth-Attard

Haworth-Attard

Barbara Haworth-Attard was born in Kitchener, Ontario and now lives in London, Ontario with her husband and two sons. Her fondest memories of childhood are of her weekly Saturday visits to the library, a tradition carried on to date. While always possessed of the writing bug, it was not until 1992 that she began writing middle grade and YA fiction in various genre (unable to stick to one). Her next release is Flying Geese from HarperCollins in April 2001, a middle-grade novel combining her two passions, history and quilting.
