About Anne

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, April 2022. (https://ecwpress.com/collections/literary/products/what-is-written-on-the-tongue) 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 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 Apart: a year of pandemic poetry and prose (SWG 2021), and 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.

  1. Hey Cuz
    Know we haven’t had much contact for the last hundred years or so but just wanted to drop a note and say I am glad your dreams are real and coming to fruition. I knew the creativity in the family went somewhere and I am glad it went to someone as deserving as you.
    You’ve come a long way from fighting over having to sit in the high chair and I wish you nothing but success and joy in the future. Maybe you’ll sign the copy of “Dollybird” I ordered the next time we meet.
    With love and regards your 1st cousin

    1. Wow Rob, so great to hear from you! I can’t believe how long ago that high chair thing actually was. Thanks so much for making contact. I’ll make a point of coming your way sometime soon and will indeed sign that book! Take care.
