Irene with book-final-sml

Irene Davidson-Fisher is a published author, born in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Irene is a graduate of the University of Alberta and the Institute of Children’s Literature’s Basic and Advanced Programmes. Throughout Irene’s business career, she put words in other people’s mouths writing scripts and speeches, to name a few mediums. Today, Irene’s Grandchildren encourage her to use these skills and bring her real and imaginary characters to life. Irene loves reading stories to children and adults and she has made guest appearances at various Ontario locations including Dorset, the Haliburton Highlands and Georgetown and Ajax Chapters/Indigo Book Store.
