Welcome! I’m Jean Mills, the author of five novels for young adult readers, including Skating Over Thin Ice (Red Deer Press, May 2018), three books for middle-grade ESL learners, and numerous short stories for younger readers. I’m also a professional writer/editor and a former college Communications teacher. Words are my thing!

I’m a member of The Writers’ Union of Canada (TWUC), the Canadian Society for Children’s Authors, Illustrators and Performers (CANSCAIP) and the Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC).

Take a look around while you’re here. I’ve included a bio, info about my books and other writerly work, as well as a link to my blog, Writer’s Life.

And if you’re interested in exploring some of the music that appears in Skating Over Thin Ice, be sure to check out the Genny’s Playlist page (please be patient! It’s still under construction…)

NEWS: Stay tuned for news of Dinner and a Show at Rustic Lodgemy next YA novel, coming from Red Deer Press in 2019.
