Dacia Robertson

Author, illustrator, educator and world traveler, Dacia’s spark was ignited to write a children’s book under the influence of her university professor.  A TREK THROUGH THE JUNGLE (Xlibris, 2014) was inspired by her own experience while visiting Chiangmai, Thailand. 

Dacia believes that there is no better way to prepare a child for a life of creativity and curiosity than to give them a book about a country and culture different than their own.  Her love for travel, reading, writing and art have stemmed from a young age.  Dacia has shared her children’s book with her students from grades K to 8.  Her students not only enjoy the experience of “trekking through the jungle” they also have a keen interest about the unique style used in her illustrations, scribbilism. 

Dacia holds a B.A., B.Ed, and M.Ed in administration and leadership and currently resides in Moncton with her precious Westie, Mathilda.
