How did you get your start as an author? I grew up in Paris, Ontario, and was socially awkward from the start — a great excuse for spending lots of time in the library. Reading a lot — and meeting the wondrous Jean Little when I was a kid — sent me on the path of wanting to write.
How do you choose your subjects? Tell us about the process you go through to research and write your books. They are generally on the theme of how can we manage to keep ourselves strong in a world that often makes us feel we have no power. I choose where to go and what to focus on depending on my interests and what seems possible and what seems like I can be useful at. So often, books are optioned for films but rarely come to fruition.

I was recruited from school to work in video games, at BioWare in Edmonton. I was there for two years and also moonlit as much as possible doing editorial illustration. I also started making mini comics at that time and shortly after started attending comic conventions. I started freelancing full time in , when I was I moved to New York and… just continued to do illustration and make comics, I guess!

I think what ties it all together is Drawing. In my new picture book, They Say Blue , I painted the backgrounds then drew on top of it with a Cintiq a digital drawing tablet. Your debut picture book, They Say Blue , comes out this March. What was your inspiration for this story? On the surface it is about colour and nature.

Scott Jaeger, well known muskie guide and new owner of North Shore Lodge on Eagle Lake, was also part of the guide crew.

He fished for three days on Eagle Lake and caught several muskie, as the show will demonstrate. I think people will be interested in the connection Jeremy draws between First Nation legends and his time on the water.

Eagle Lake held the Ontario angling record muskie for decades, at 61 pounds 9 ounces and 59 inches.
