About Gwen Smid

Gwen Smid lives in Wakefield, Quebec, Canada with her husband and two wee daughters. They like to canoe, puzzle over Star Wars puzzles, and read lots and lots (and lots) of books.

Gwen’s newest picture book, T-Rex Girl, will be available in February 2019 from Peanut Butter Press. She is also proudly the author of the Mary’s Atlas picture book series; a McNally Robinson bestseller with thousands of copies sold.

Gwen’s writing has won awards and has appeared in short story anthologies, newspapers, and academic journals.

In order to feel rested, Gwen drinks copious amounts of tea and often throws her alarm clock out the window. She has select tea cups for select days, and she has lots and lots (and lots) of alarm clocks.

Please check out the picture books she’s reviewed on her Mary’s Atlas site.
