Nancy Rose

Nancy Rose is often called “the squirrel lady”. She is the author and photographer of four picture books in the Secret Life of Squirrels series, and two board books featuring Oakley the Squirrel. She is a retired high school Family Studies teacher and Guidance Counsellor. Nancy has always been a crafter. In 2010 she started making squirrel-size props and dioramas, and she captured photos of her backyard squirrels when they explored her sets to find the hidden nuts. Her humorous photos of the squirrels appeared online and in newspapers and magazines worldwide.

In 2014 her first children’s book, The Secret Life of Squirrels, was published in Canada, U.S., Japan and South Korea and from there other books and calendars, puzzles and quilt fabrics followed, sharing her creative squirrel photos with even more squirrel lovers.
