About The Author


Madeline Brennan is a Canadian children’s book author and former employee of the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. After graduating from the University of Guelph in 2018, Madeline decided to see what it would be like to live amongst the mountains of Banff, Alberta.

Which is precisely where she met Bear and found the inspiration to begin writing a book about his adventures in the same Castle she came to know and love.

While working at the hotel, she decided to combine her passion for writing and love of animals in the form of a children's book. One that she would be able to share with both past and present guests of the Castle in the Rockies.

Her goal through beginning to write this series is to provide guests with a keepsake from their stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. So that everyone can have the chance to look back and not only remember the time they spent in Banff, but see it through the eyes of the hotel's Canine Ambassador himself. And what could be better than that?
