Tricia Nuyaqik Brown has been writing and editing publications about Alaska since the early 1980s. In 1998, she partnered with Roy Corral to write and photograph the now classic Children of the Midnight Sun, which received national critical acclaim for its profiles of Alaska Native children. Twenty years later, Brown and Corral flew throughout Alaska to produce Children of the First People, featuring a new cast of ten Alaska Native children, one from each tribal group. Tricia has written nearly two dozen nonfiction books for adults; another eight picture books for children may be found in schools, libraries, and personal collections. She works independently as an author, editor, and book developer for various publishers.
