Kirsten Pendreigh is a children’s author and poet from Vancouver. Her debut picture book, LUNA’S GREEN PET, publishes in August 2022 with Sleeping Bear Press. In the story, beautifully illustrated by Carmen Mok, a determined little girl circumvents her landlord's strict “No Pets” policy by “rescuing” a houseplant and training it to be her pet. While her friends are skeptical, Luna’s love and attention reap sweet rewards. Kirsten’s poems are found in Canadian literary magazines and anthologies including Best Canadian Poetry 2021, Arc, Room, CV2, Prairie Fire, This Magazine, Juniper Poetry, Another Dysfunctional Cancer Poem Anthology, (Mansfield Press), The Temz Review Covid Anthology, Sweet Water: Poems for the Watershed (Caitlin Press) and Sustenance Anthology, (Anvil Press). Formerly a CBC and NPR journalist, Kirsten also writes non-fiction for children and has more picture books on the way. Kirsten is represented by Natalie Lakosil at the Irene Goodman Literary Agency.
