Anita Miettunen writes and illustrates in Vancouver BC, where she recently completed her MA in Children's Literature at the University of British Columbia. She's previously worked in environmental regulatory science for the federal government. Her children's book, Big Blue Forever, is inspired by the true story of how a blue whale skeleton, buried for over twenty years in PEI, was shipped cross country and reassembled for permanent display at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum in Vancouver.
