Alma Fullerton was born in Ottawa Ontario, as one of seven children. Her dad was in the military so they moved when his postings changed, first to Trenton when she was two, then to Comox when she was twelve. She didn’t enjoy reading as a child, and once even wrote a book report based on the back flap of a book without reading the rest of it. Around grade nine she discovered books that she really loved, but these were never the books assigned in school.
Alma loves gardening (and reading in the garden), sushi, and thunderstorms.
