About the Author

cbheller-author-photo-2008Hello! I’m Carolyn B. Heller. I’m a travel writer, author of the book, Living Abroad in Canada, and creator of the Living Abroad in Canada website.

I’m an American — I was born in Pennsylvania, grew up in Indiana, went to college in Rhode Island, and lived for many years in Boston — and in 2003, I moved to Canada with my husband and daughters. My family and I now hold dual U.S.-Canadian citizenship.

I’ve traveled to nearly 40 countries on six continents, and I write about travel, food, and culture for guidebooks, magazines, newspapers, and online publications. My newest book is Moon Ontario, a travel guide that’s packed with information about the province of Ontario. Click here to learn more about my writing and my travels.

Why did I write Living Abroad in Canada and create this website? Because when my family and I moved to Canada, we were continually surprised by all the things we didn’t know!

I hope you’ll find the information here at www.livingabroadincanada.com and in the book useful.

Enjoy your explorations, and welcome to Canada!
