Teresa Earle grew up exploring the islands and waterways of BC's Georgia Strait near her hometown of Vancouver. She completed a BA at University of British Columbia, worked for the family publishing business, and completed the Writing and Publishing Program at Simon Fraser University. A spontaneous year of dogmushing turned into a decade of adventure in Minnesota, Northwest Territories, Yukon and points overseas. Today Earle is a writer, consultant, entrepreneur and manager of a growing photography business. She's written for Canadian Geographic, Explore and Up Here and is a former science and nature newspaper columnist.
