(1949- ) Canadian teacher, poet and author, active from the mid 1990s in various genres, including stories for younger children; her studies of rural life in British Columbia (not listed below) are strongly felt. The Bone House (2002), her first tale of sf interest, is set in a Near Future British Columbia devastated first by Climate Change and second by corporate manipulation of the distorted world they have been instrumental in creating. The protagonist escapes Vancouver and helps found a rural enclave, a Zone where they hope to survive and learn. Morven and the Horse Clan (2013) is Prehistoric SF; its young protagonist changes the world by learning to tame horses. [JC]
