- Harriet Richards' creative reality was as a visual artist until an obstinate painting insisted on becoming a short story. Since then, she has published three books of fiction.
The Lavender Child; novel; (1999 SK Book Awards: Winner Best First Book, Finalist Fiction Award)
Waiting for the Piano Tuner to Die; short fiction; (2003 SBA: Finalist Book of the Year)
The Pious Robber; short fiction; (2013 SBA Finalist Book of the Year, Winner Fiction Award)
Her work has been featured on CBC Radio, and published in literary journals in Canada and Wales; and her paintings have appeared on book covers in both countries.
She has served as mentor, and edited many books of fiction and literary essays for writers across Canada. She lives in Saskatoon.
