About this author

Gail's novels The Cure for Death by Lighting and A Recipe for Bees were international bestsellers, and were both finalists for the prestigious Giller Prize in Canada. The Cure for Death by Lightning won the UK’s Betty Trask Prize among other awards. A Rhinestone Button was a national bestseller in Canada and Gail's first book, The Miss Hereford Stories, was short-listed for the Leacock Award for humour. Turtle Valley, just out in trade paperback, is a Canadian bestseller.

Gail teaches fiction and novel in the creative writing optional-residency MFA program at the University of British Columbia, and divides her time between Manitoulin Island and the Shuswap-Thompson region, the landscape found in so much of her writing.
