Bernadine Morris was born in Humboldt, SK., and grew up in central Canada, migrating to British Columbia as a young woman. She lives with her husband in the city of Chilliwack, British Columbia, in the scenic Upper Fraser Valley, which is the setting for S.S. Huber – The Dragon’s Eye Crystal. She is retired from two satisfying careers in health and education. She enjoys hiking, cycling and walking in the peace of the forests, the majesty of the mountains, and on the many riverside trails of the Fraser Valley.
She discovered her interest in language and writing at an early age. As a child, she loved to read, to slip the bonds of reality and ride the winds of fantasy through distant lands with imagined characters. She has written two award-winning Haiku poems and writes short prose, poetry and song lyrics for pleasure.
Working in the field of education, she recalls the joy of instilling the love of reading in students. She has raised three children and realizes busy lives can distract from the pleasure of a good book. Please take the time to read—to nurture your soul, your mind and your heart. Read to your children, stretch their fertile imaginations and best of all build those all-important bonds when you share a great story.
