About the Authors
Dwayne LaFitte was born in Labrador and grew up in the outport community of Port au Port on the West Coast of Newfoundland. After high school, he moved to St. John’s where he earned a bachelor of arts degree from Memorial University. During his studies, he became a passionate philanthropist, and he continues to be a supporter and activist for numerous charities. He is an experienced guide, survivalist, and outdoorsman, and he has a fascination for medieval history and culture. He has worked as an educator and researcher, and he has been employed in publishing in various capacities. His career path eventually led him to the Government of Canada where he presently works assisting youth, seniors, and the unemployed. Dwayne currently resides in Mount Pearl with his wife, Twila, and son, Liam.

Thérèse Cilia is a freelance illustrator creating works for commission, print, and web. She was born and raised in rural Ontario, spent her formative years on the island of Malta in the Mediterranean, and obtained a bachelor of fine arts degree in drawing and painting at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto. She recently turned a two-week artist retreat in Newfoundland into a year-long residence in Bonavista and is currently pursuing her way back to Newfoundland in hopes of calling it home.
