Lesley Choyce divides his time between teaching, writing, running Pottersfield Press and hosting a television talk show. He is the author of almost sixty books for youth and adults. Lesley lives in Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia.

Shoulder the Sky is a rarity among young adult novels - it challenges the reader with philosophical thought and complex observations.
