About the author
Tanya has been drawing since she was young. After years of art classes, studying graphic design and advertising she turned to children's book illustrating. She feels a particular connection to children's illustrations as after her daughters were born she spent countless hours reading and drawing stories for them.
Squirrel's Peanut Allergy was created when her oldest daughter was diagnosed with a severe peanut/nut allergy and was about to start school. Telling her daughter's story will help classmates and friends at school understand her daughter's situation and help other children with food allergies realize they are not that different after all.
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada she now lives in Bermuda with her husband and two daughters.
