PortraitJohn Wilson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and attended the University of St. Andrews, where he took an Honours B.Sc. in Geology. His first position was with the Geological Survey of Rhodesia, but he eventually found his way to the oil fields of Canada. Having young children inspired him to begin writing children's stories. Wilson's first junior novel, "Weet, " was published in 1995 by Napoleon Publishing and followed by "Weet's Quest" and "Weet Alone" in subsequent years. A frequent award winner for his children's literature, he writes both fiction and non-fiction for that age group, most freqeuntly with an histoical perspective.

"A bracingly critical perspective. With a few deft sentences he lays out the story in a way that doesn't overwhelm the emotions of his young audience, but provides the context they'll need to read an interpret more advanced works in the future." -- Deirdre Baker
