Kevin Sylvester is an award winning illustrator, writer and broadcaster.

His series The Neil Flambé Capers is already a bestseller and critical success. Neil Flambé and the Marco Polo Murders was released in spring 2010. Students across Ontario picked the book as the Silver Birch winner for fiction in 2011! Book #2 Neil Flambé and the Aztec Abduction was released in fall 2010. Book #3 Neil Flambé and the Crusader Curse is due in Spring 2012.

Super-chef Gordon Ramsay calls the series “Good Fun”.

Kevin’s first picture book Splinters was published in fall 2010 by Tundra. It’s about a young girl who only wants to play hockey, but the mean coach and her daughters won’t let her. Can her fairy goaltender come to the rescue?

Kevin now splits his time between his attic studio in Toronto and the radio. He was named a Massey Journalism Scholar in 2007 and used the time to study theology at the University of Toronto. Kevin will talk about his experience drawing everything from pen and ink to full watercolours - drawing for yourself and for others and the challenges and rewards of digital editing.

And he'll probably crack a few jokes along the way.
