Meet the Author

Born of Canadian parents in Princeton, New Jersey, Dave Macleod's awareness of the cultural differences between the two countries began at an early age. He moved to Canada in 1975 to study forestry, and in his spare time he learned to construct crossword puzzles. His puzzles have appeared in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and other newspapers. Dave lives in Nelson, BC.

Barbara Olson's love of words has led her to earn a degree in French translation, to write a newspaper column on the joys and pitfalls of the English language, and most recently, to construct crossword puzzles. Her puzzles have appeared in Saturday Night Magazine, The Toronto Sun, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and have been syndicated to hundreds of websites and publications across the continent. Barbara lives in Nelson, British Columbia.
