About the Authors
Keegan Connor Tracy is an award-winning actress best known for her ability to play a diverse range of characters - from the inscrutable Blue Fairy on ABC's hit show Once Upon a Time to her turn as troubled teacher Blair Watson, who wooed young Norman in Bates Motel. Now enjoying her third season as a Professor of Magic on Syfy's hit The Magicians, she also rules as Queen Belle in both installments of Disney's smash musical success Descendants, which has upwards of 100 million views. She has also been known to destroy a zombie or two in Legendary Films' adaptations of the Dead Rising franchise, and recently recurred, to her delight, on Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events. Whether she is training in Muay Thai to help with fight scenes, practicing guitar and ukulele to perform for live audiences, or loading up the raft for a white water expedition, Keegan is always looking for what's next. Having recently completed her directorial debut, she remains actively involved in the Women in Film and TV mentorship program, helping up-and-coming actors by sharing what she has learned in her 20+ years in the industry. Keegan lives and works in Vancouver - or wherever they send her next.

Roz MacLean is a professional educator who specializes is supporting students with diverse needs in Vancouver. She is used to exploring and sharing through her art practice, but felt that the best way to share her enthusiasm about cultivating self-compassion, a positive mind set, and resilience was by combining pictures and words into beautiful books. Her first book, Violet's Cloudy Day, was a finalist for the 2015 Montaigne Medal at the Eric Hoffer Awards and her second book, The Body Book, won the Gold Medal at the 2017 Benjamin Franklin Awards.
