Frances Greenslade was born in St. Catharines, Ontario and has
since lived in Winnipeg, Regina, Vancouver and Chilliwack. But Penticton
is finally home. She’s been writing stories since she could write and
was once given the advice to write the book she wanted to read. Since
she loves a gripping narrative and a hint of mystery, her first novel, Shelter,
opens with a missing person. She wondered what would happen if a
mother, who has always been the best of mothers, left her two daughters
in the rugged country of the Chilcotin and didn’t come back. Shelter is published in Canada by Knopf Random House. By the Secret Ladder and A Pilgrim in Ireland are her two previous books, both memoir.
Anne McDonald’s first novel To the Edge of the Sea,
released by Thistledown Press Spring 2011, explores the formation of
Canada during the Confederation conferences of 1864. Themes of home and
away, loss, love, belief and deception run throughout the story of John A
Macdonald, Mercy Ann Coles (real daughter of the PEI delegate George
Coles), and Alex and Reggie, two PE Island brothers caught up in the
times of the day — the circus and the Tenant’s League.
