Gwen Whiting

Whiting250x250Gwen Whiting has always regarded the deep rain forest of the Olympic Peninsula the one place that she feels most at home. Gwen grew up in small towns across the Pacific Northwest, going to slug races and strawberry festivals when she wasn’t scribbling on any scrap of paper she could come by. She boasts the dubious distinction of going to a public school with only eight students, learning Irish sea chanteys from a man who sang with the Clancy Brothers, and catching tadpoles during classes.

Her adult life is generally just about as much fun. Gwen lives with her husband , James , their children and a herd of cats in the City of Destiny. As a curator and public historian, she spends most of her days digging through old papers and chasing artifacts while daydreaming about magicians and spaceships. Always happy to hear from readers, Gwen can be found through her website at gwenwhiting.com.
