About the Author

Sara Hamil is a storyteller, adventurer, quasi-anthropologist, accidental social media enthusiast and dog-lover. She recently relocated from Belleville, Ontario to live and work in beautiful Jasper, Alberta. A graduate of both the University of Toronto and Loyalist College, Sara works in marketing and communications in the tourism industry now after 4+ years of working with social media and teaching as a college instructor.

Marrying a life-long love of writing and yammering endlessly, Sara writes about her life and loves, which generally consist of her wanderings, her work and her beloved dog, Jasper. If it sounds like a bit of a grab-bag, that’s because it is. But don’t worry – she does her best to keep it interesting.
