Write Nature

George Mercer is an award-winning local author of Dyed In The Green, the first fiction series about Canada’s national parks. His latest book, Harking, also set in national parks, is his first work outside of the series and his first work of Young-Adult fiction.

A former Canadian national park warden, George has worked in six national parks across Canada from the East Coast to the West, including the North and the Canadian Rockies. His passion for parks led him to writing the first fiction series about Canada’s iconic special places and the people dedicated to their protection. Did you know that Canada had one of the first national parks systems in the world and one of our newest parks, Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, is right here in your backyard!
