Duncan Thornton established his reputation as a compelling young adult fantasy writer with Kalifax, which was short-listed for many awards, including the 2000 Governor General’s Award, the Mr. Christie’s award, the Manitoba Best First Novel and Best Children’s Book awards, and the Manitoba Young Readers’ Choice Award. That first book has been followed by two highly successful sequels, Captain Jenny and the Sea of Wonders, and The Star-Glass. His new novel, Shadow-Town (Annick), is the first of a four-book series which introduces readers to cousins Jack and Rose—and the ghostly Whisperers. Duncan Thornton also writes non-fiction and drama, and he lives in Winnipeg.
