Welcome to Osborne Bay Books

Osborne Bay Books is the co-creation of Liz Maxwell Forbes and Grant B. Evans. Grant, after many months of writing has emerged with View From the Tower, an engaging and humorous account of his years as an air traffic controller in Port Hardy back when the only access was by air or steamship. And Liz, founder of the Chemainus Writers group, has revisited the writings of her growing-up years and rewritten them into a cohesive whole: Growing Up Weird.
