(1973- ) Canadian author whose third novel, The Last Neanderthal (2017), combines a Prehistoric SF narrative – whose Neanderthal protagonist finds herself intimately involved with a Homo sapiens male as the weather worsens – with the twenty-first century story of a pregnant archaeologist who, 40,000 years later, discovers her ancestor's bones. The close community of Neanderthal and Homo sapiens is argued forcefully (see Evolution), and the continuity of life upon this planet is affirmed. [JC]
