Danette Byatt lives in Kitchener, Ontario where she writes, illustrates and designs all sorts of fun projects when she’s not out hiking, swimming and exploring — or burning up the dance floor (aka her living room). 
Danette’s favourite stories to tell contain uplifting messages of love, truth and freedom. She also adds delightful small details, humour and whimsy to everything she does.
Her first author-illustrated picture book WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE (WorthyKids) published March 2023. 
She also illustrated ROCK AND ROLL WOODS (Spork, written by Sherry Howard) under the pen name Anika A Wolf and won the Page Street Kids Prize in 2019 for her dummy SHOOT! A LOVE STORY. 
Her graphic design portfolio is also available for perusing.
