• Biography

    Geraldine Tuck writer, world traveller and retired elementary teacher, is known for her Mystery Marauder Series for readers 8-14. Setting is along the south shore of Nova Scotia during the 1930's. The first three books deal with rum running, gold mining and the Oak Island Mystery. All are suitable for grades 3-6. During a school visit, students are dressed as characters and books are discussed. Time to draw a treasure map or give a verbal lesson, 'Improving Detail', is also offered.

    Her newest book, Halifax Explosion Mystery, is available late September 2017, just in time for the 100 anniversary of the explosion. Although read by younger students, the content is more suited to grades 6-9. The hour visit involves: a presntation on the history of the explosion, an explanation how artifacts and newspapers are used to plot a story and an interactive lesson showing students how to weave facts with fiction to write their own story.
