Sheilah Lukins has written three non-fiction books for adults and two children’s books. The first book in her “Errol’s Adventure” series, Full Speed Ahead: Errol’s Bell Island Adventure, won the 2018 Bruneau Family Children’s/Young Adult Award and its follow-up Flying Ace: Errol’s Gander Adventure was longlisted for the award in 2020. Having travelled the world and had many adventures of her own, the author believes that the most important part of an adventure is who you meet, how you can help, and what you can learn from it all. A lover of history, horses, dogs, good food, and great stories, she lives and writes in St. Philips, Newfoundland with her husband and several garden mice.
Laurel Keating’s illustrations charm and delight children of all ages. An award-winning artist, her work has adorned several Newfoundland children’s books, including Yaffle’s Journey, the Find Scruncheon and Touton books, Moose’s Roof, Elliot and the Impossible Fish, Full Speed Ahead: Errol’s Bell Island Adventure, and Flying Ace: Errol’s Gander Adventure. Once upon an Iceberg: Errol’s Twillingate Adventure is her tenth book.
“In this latest entry in Sheilah Lukins’ early chapter book series about Errol’s ongoing exploits, our feisty and kindhearted hero is as intrepid as ever. The chapters are short and action-packed, perfect for holding the attention of young readers.” - Lisa Doucet, Atlantic Books Today
