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.
