Nathalie Ladner-Bischoff

During the "hungry thirties," Nathalie Ladner-Bischoff was the first-born daughter of pioneer parents who resided in a two-room, board shack near Wanham, Alberta, Canada. "Somehow our parents and their three children survived the cold winters of minus 60 degrees."

In 1951 Nathalie graduated from Armstrong, B.C. high school and worked a few years at Rest Haven Hospital, Sidney, B.C., as an admissions clerk and assistant accountant. After recovering from acute rheumatic fever, she attended Walla Walla College and completed an R.N., B.S. course in 1964. For twenty-three years Nathalie served as a nurse in Portland, Oregon; Loma Linda, California; and in the Tri-Cities, Washington.

During the late '70's, Nathalie took a course entitled "Writing for Children," from the Institute of Children's Literature and began writing stories for children. She has since been published in Bread for Children, Our Little Friend, and other magazines.

To relax, Nathalie likes to read, knit, crochet, or sew. "But whenever a story inspires me," she says, "I use my spare time to write."
