ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

Whitney Stewart puts her heart, mind, and feet into her work. She’s trekked in a Himalayan snowstorm with Sir Edmund Hillary and hiked to remote Buddhist monasteries in Tibet. She’s interviewed the Dalai Lama in India and Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma. She’s dug for shrapnel and bones in former WWII battlefields in rural Poland and has sat for days in meditation retreats. She is the author of both fiction and nonfiction for children, including her most recent publication, Mindful Kids: 50 Mindfulness Activities for Kindness, Focus, and Calm. She also collaborated with Denis Havel on FELDPOST: The War Letters of Friedrich Reiner Niemann, A German Soldier on the Eastern Front and wrote an award-winning travel series on her research to find her husband’s German uncle who went missing in World War Two. When she is not writing or traveling, she teaches mindfulness and meditation to children.
