Drawn to Water

Myrtle has always been drawn to water and is happiest when she is near the sea. Fortunately, she has been close to water all her life and was lucky to have had a life partner who also enjoyed the ocean.

Readers of her books will gain a better understanding of the impact oceans have had on her life, from earliest days to the present.

Love of Books

Myrtle Rae Forberg Siebert's deep appreciation for books came during her childhood when she lived in a floathouse along the BC coast.

No School, No Library
