About the Author Marie Donais Calder
Marie Donais Calder´s parents taught her that she could do most anything she set her mind to. And she did. Though extremely near-sighted since birth, which has deteriorated to low vision, she participated in various sports, tree-climbing and any other challenges that came her way in her childhood. She earned her B.Ed. after marrying Darcy and having their three daughters, Nicole, Chantelle and Kari-Lynn. Marie and Darcy live in Estevan, Saskatchewan. They have two granddaughters, Piper and Kyenna, and one surrogate granddaughter, Lyanna.
