Maureen Marks-Mendonça started storytelling in the schoolyard at age 9. Before becoming a novelist, however, she spent many enjoyable years working and travelling in Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, and North America, as a diplomat and economist. During this period, she wrote extensively for business and government publications. Eventually, life came full circle. Volunteer work with young people stirred the fires of fiction in her again, and when she finally stepped back into the world between dreams and visions, Alex Springfeather was there, waiting. Legend of the Swan Children is his story.
Maureen Marks-Mendonça and her husband live in Ontario. She holds a double honours degree in Mathematics and Economics from McMaster University, Ontario, and a Master’s Degree in Operations Research from Stanford University, California.
