Four-year-old Leah loved being a pirate for Halloween. She never considered being a princess or a fairy, no matter what her friends said.
Nadia Mike is an Inuit educator, who recently graduated with a bachelor of education from the University of Regina. Although Nadia has lived in many communities across the North, she considers Iqaluit, Nunavut, her home. Nadia has two daughters, Leah and Jaime, who constantly teach her to be less serious and enjoy every day. These two girls have also reminded Nadia of the importance of children's literature, and having stories with settings, characters, and themes, that show children that their lives and cultures are important enough to be in books. Nadia loves to travel, cook, sew, and drink strong coffee. In 2014, Nadia published her first book, an Inuktitut-language first words board book. Leah's Mustache Party is her first picture book.
