Duane Lawrence was born in Princeton, British Columbia. He is a high-school teacher who has lived and taught in London, England and Nara, Japan (which is in a parklike setting with hundreds of tame deer).
The author, who now lives in Vancouver, enjoys walking in the city's Stanley Park and on one such stroll was inspired to write about animals living there.
The author speaks French and Japanese and is available for interviews and events.
