Marianne Dubuc - Author/Illustrator

Marianne was born in Montreal, Quebec. As an only child, she would follow her parents on their outings and keep busy drawing for hours. While growing up, she drew and invented stories for her young cousins.

In 2006, she published her first book, The Sea, after studying graphic design at l'Université du Québec à Montréal. She has since been writing and illustrating children's books with publishers from many countries. Marianne's books include In Front of My House, which was nominated for the 2011 Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award, The Bus Ride, which received the 2015 TD Canadian Children's Literature Award, Mr. Postmouse's Rounds, which won the 2016 Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Award for Children's Picture Books, The Animals' Ark and Lucy and Company.

Marianne lives in Montreal, where she shares her time between her work and her family, with great delight.
