Dorothy Perkyns was a teacher in England before coming to Canada in 1969. She began writing in the early seventies, contributing many articles to Canadian magazines and broadcasting regularly on CBC Radio. Her work was also published in the United States and in England.

Her first book, The Mystery of the Hemlock Ravine, appeared in 1986, followed by Bilson Award winner Rachel’s Revolution (1988), Peril at Plover Point (1991) and Signal Across the Sea (1994). All are available from Lancelot Press.

The author’s idea for this novel came from learning of a significant mastodon discovery made in Nova Scotia in the fall of 1991.
