Walter Fordham found his inspiration for Iliana in the Children's Day holiday. As a father to two girls and twin boys, Walter decided to fulfill a request that had been made long ago for him to tell "the story" of Children's Day.
In addition to being a talented singer and storyteller, Walter is a poet whose work has appeared in New Directions, International Anthology of Prose and Poetry. Iliana is his first book.
Walter was born and raised in New Jersey and studied English Literature at Guildord College. He now makes his home with his wife Joanne and children Catherine, Alicia, Peter, and William in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
