In Bringing Up Beauty, Elizabeth had her heart broken over the lab puppy she raised for - and returned to - a guide dog program. In A Different Kind of Beauty, she's trying again. But this time, she vows, she won't fall in love. She'll have fun, sure, but she won't surrender to those big soulful eyes and goofy puppy love. Hmmm... is it Beauty II she's resisting, or Scott, the "former" boyfriend who just keeps hanging around?
Read information about the authorBorn in Ajax, Sylvia McNicoll (pseudonym Genna Dare ) grew up in Montreal, Quebec where she received her BA in English with a minor in Economics from Concordia University. She began her writing career with adult short stories and household tips that were published in women's magazines, and moved on to freelance articles for Burlington local newspapers. Her friend and published author, Gisela Sherman, convinced her to take a children's writing course by Paul Kropp at Sheridan College. It was under his guidance that she wrote her first book "Blueberries and Whipped Cream" as a class project. Nine published books later she returned to Sheridan College to teach creative writing for a decade. She also edited "Today's Parent Toronto" for eight years.
