Writer and visual artist Simone Hébert Allard was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba. A compelling interest in nature has been a driving force throughout her life, a love that she expresses in both print and images. Besides having published five nature-related children’s books in French, she has taken part in a number of artistic exhibitions and directed a television documentary on the unusual theme of Canada’s lake monsters. Manitoba Butterflies: A Field Guide is her first adult book.
