On October 5, 2016, Connor McDavid made NHL history when, at the age of 19 years and 266 days, he was named captain of the Edmonton Oilers — the youngest captain in NHL history.
Connor’s story is one of exceptional talent and hard work. This high-interest biography traces his life from growing up in a close-knit hockey family through an exceptional junior hockey career, international gold medals and the NHL, where he led his team to its first Stanley Cup playoffs in over a decade…
“I watched Lorna give ten presentations to 560 participants. Through her humour and lively manner, often acting out the instances she described, she kept the children engaged and entertained. Lorna’s presentations, however, are more than just entertaining – they are educational as well. With the clever use of well thought out questions and audience participation, Lorna was able to provide the children with numerous learning opportunities – whether about writing, current issues or the importance of following their dreams.”Jen Anderson
“Lorna’s positive energy and love of reading and writing was infectious. She related exceptionally well with all ages. Lorna infused personal experiences that inspire her craft and introduced us to her many other titles. She emphasized the importance of reading and writing and the places books can take us. Her range of topics is appealing and appropriate for both genders.”
“Thank you so very much for the truly amazing visit today!!!!!! You rock!!!! Our best author visit ever!!!!!! :)”Regina Bandelj
My first book ever published was “Interference” and since then I haven’t looked back. I have written for many different ages and genres including my picture book series featuring Puckster for hockey fans aged four to six, my middle school hockey fiction series, and my young adult elite athlete podium series for sports fans of all types. My newest series is my One-2-One young adult books about the real life buddy pairing program at Sir Winston Churchill school. I’ve also tried my hand at a funny middle grade fiction. Yeah! I have a few more releases that will be coming out in the upcoming year, including a non-fiction book on superstar Connor McDavid. Watch for news on these under the New Releases on my site. Please, come on in, say hello and stay awhile! This site is for you to enjoy.
