Christine Nadeau was born in Thetford Mines, where its man made mountains transform into gigantic playgrounds in children’s dreams. She now lives on the South Shore of Montreal. Young at heart and an avid reader of children’s books, Christine studied children’s literature. During her studies, she entered a short stories contest… and won! Proud of this first prize, she is now dedicated to writing for children. The story of Jack is inspired by this winning short story.
