Ken Klonsky was a behavioural resource teacher in Toronto in the 1980s prior to moving to Vancouver in 1992. He co-authored Taking Steam with the late Brian Shein, a play staged in New York and Toronto in 1983. He published a suite of stories about problem children in the school system, Songs of Aging Children (Arsenal, 1992).
