About the Author

C. J. Schneider lives in Alberta, Canada, with her husband, three sweet children, a wild imagination, and a distaste for all things laundry. Though she had many adventures before motherhood—exploring and working in Asia, Europe, and Africa—her greatest and most challenging venture has been discovering the wonder of family and building a village of friends and fellow moms.
