A little about me. A graduate of the Humber School of Writing, my second novel, What is Written on the Tongue, is forthcoming from ECW Press in Spring 2022. The story is set in 1945 Indonesia where I was fortunate to travel for research (my gratitude to both the Saskatchewan Arts Board and Canada Council). I also received the 2018 Saskatchewan Foundation for the Arts Literary Award for work on this story. More information coming as publication draws near.
A story, Belle’s Boys, was recently published in Grain Literary Magazine and my first novel, Dollybird, received the Willa Award for Historical Fiction and was shortlisted for the Saskatchewan fiction award. I was ecstatic to have poetry appear in Gush: Menstrual Manifestos For Our Time (Frontenac House, 2018).
Saskatchewan born and raised, I have a Political Science degree from the University of Saskatchewan, am an award- winning freelance agricultural journalist and a no-awards, but damn good, farmer. Our four grown children have flown the coop and I live with my husband and dog near Weyburn, Saskatchewan.
