G. M. Moore is a former newspaper writer, editor and columnist. She currently works as a magazine art director and writes fiction as a hobby. The author grew up battling game fish and exploring the lakes of northern Wisconsin, and uses that state's enchanting wilderness as her muse. During the summer months, you can still find the Chicago-area author "up north" and out on the lake.
"Ghosts of Manitowish Waters" is the author's first young adult book. Moore is also the author of a middle grade action-adventure series. The Up North Adventure series includes, "Muskie Attack" (Book 1), "Ancient Elk Hunt" (Book 2) and "Snakehead Invasion" (Book 3).
Moore was inspired to write her first book, "Muskie Attack", by her then 9-year-old nephew who, in a literary world filled with fantasy, was struggling to find books that appealed to his outdoor interests and adventurous spirit.
When not writing, Moore can be found walking her dog, Piper, or feeding the fish, birds and flying squirrels in her Snow White-like backyard.

Sandra and her beloved Australian cattle dog, Blue, have grown up together, facing both tragedy and glory. They'd met in the Australian Outback and had returned to her homeland of Holland for a few years, when they got the surprising news that her father had to go back to work at the research station, Mitchell, in Outback Australia.
When they were last in Mitchell, Sandra was with Blue every second of the day because she could attend the School of the Air. Now that she was in high school, she had to go to boarding school in Sydney and would be far away from everyone she knew and loved.
Sandra and Blue missed each other greatly and looked forward to the school holidays when they were, once again, inseparable. Sandra would always be number one to Blue, but while she was away, Blue found a precious companion in Honey, a little female cattle dog who was almost fully blind. Blue took it upon himself to care for the little dog and soon they became a happy family with four gorgeous puppies! Of course, Sandra was over the moon.
Over the years, Sandra successfully completed high school, while Blue remained the hero of the Outback town of Mitchell. Once again, it was time to make a life-changing decision. Sandra was offered the opportunity of a lifetime to study art at Sorbonne University in Paris. And so, Sandra and Blue, with their new companion, Honey, packed their bags again and were headed off to France.
