About the Author
Sacha Jackson first visited Quebec as an eighth-grader. Years later, she moved to Montreal with a high school diploma and a bad French accent. As a student there, she learned that the best way to get to know the city was on a bike, spending many nights touring the quiet, tree-lined streets and racing friends down Mont-Royal. After graduating from college, Sacha lived in London and Toronto before settling back in Montreal. Two of her favorite things about the city are its impractical outdoor circular staircases and the smell of hot bagels; as for Quebec City, she makes regular visits there to wander its cobbled streets and picnic on the Plains of Abraham. Sacha is a Montreal-based freelance writer and editor. Her writing has appeared in Dazed & Confused Magazine, the Montreal Mirror, Exclaim! and elsewhere.
