Keegan Connor Tracy
is an award-winning actress best known for her ability to play a diverse range of characters – from the inscrutable Blue Fairy on ABC's hit show Once Upon a Time to her turn as troubled teacher Blair Watson, who wooed young Norman in Bates Motel. Now enjoying her third season as a Professor of Magic on Syfy's hit The Magicians, she also rules as Queen Belle in both installments of Disney's smash musical success Descendants, which has upwards of 100 million views. She has also been known to destroy a zombie or two in Legendary Films' adaptations of the Dead Rising franchise, and recently recurred, to her delight, on Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events. Whether she is training in Muay Thai to help with fight scenes, practicing guitar and ukulele to perform for live audiences, or loading up the raft for a white water expedition, Keegan is always looking for what's next. Currently prepping her directorial debut, she remains actively involved in the Women in Film and TV mentorship program, helping up-and-coming actors by sharing what she has learned in her 20+ years in the industry. Keegan lives and works in Vancouver – or wherever they send her next.
Roz MacLean lives in beautiful Vancouver, BC where she balances her writing and illustration practice with supporting students with diverse needs at school. Roz is passionate about mental health, education, body positivity, self-compassion and inclusion of people with diverse abilities. These values are a constant theme in her creative work, embodied most vibrantly in her newest release, "The Body Book." As an educator, she believes that positive cultural change begins on an individual and emotional level with early education. When children learn to relate to themselves and their bodies with self-acceptance, love and care they will be better able to maintain positive mental and physical health as they navigate our society's problematic media landscape. Her first book as author/illustrator, Violet's Cloudy Day, earned an honorable mention for the Montaigne Medal at the 2015 Eric Hoffer Awards, and her second book, The Body Book, won the Gold Medal at the 2017 Benjamin Franklin Awards.
