Anita Daher has been entrenched in the book publishing industry since 1995, writing middle grade and teen novels, including fan favourites Spider’s Song, Two Foot Punch and Racing for Diamonds. Living in an ADHD dominated household has influenced the stories she writes, and her presentations, which are geared toward captivating those who are "attention different." In 2007 she received the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Author. She has worked on occasion as marketing director, editor, and radio broadcaster, and is currently editor at Great Plains Teen Fiction. When not word wrangling she enjoys playing her guitar or ukulele, and instigating things (usually house renos and adventures).
