Yvonne Jeffery is an author, editor, and award-winning feature writer with 15 years experience writing home and lifestyle stories, many of them focused on sustainable living. She credits the six months that she spent in Cambodia prior to that country's democratic elections in 1993 with giving her a sense of how the world and its people are interconnected - and how small steps eventually can make a difference. Yvonne's work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, and books around the world. Her credits include National Geographic Traveler, American Profile, The Sunday Telegraph (UK), and CanWest newspapers. She's also a weekly columnist for the Calgary Herald newspaper.
