NOTES FOR THE EVERLOST: A FIELD GUIDE TO GRIEF (Shambhala Books, September 2018) + two middle-grade novels and picture books with Nimbus Publishing. Represented by Amy Tompkins at Transatlantic.

+++

Kate lives along the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, where she was born. In November 2009 her first novel was published — 'The Dread Crew: Pirates of the Backwoods', a book January Magazine calls "a spirited tale, gorgeously rendered." It was illustrated by Governor General award-winning Sydney Smith, and was nominated for a Hackmatack Award and a Red Cedar Award.

'Flight of the Griffons', sequel to 'The Dread Crew', is the world's first adventure novel for young readers on the virtues (and fabulously exciting peril) of pirate-style environmental war

Karen Walrond and I had the most wonderful conversation about everything that matters—the reinvention of life, the integration of pain, the nourishment of creative effort, and the importance of pivotal 'white space' moments.

"This might be one of my most favourite episodes of The Make Light Show," Karen says. "My friend Kate Inglis lives the kind of life you imagine all talented writers of fant...

“Nova Scotia is a box bass and a fiddle and German sourdough and scotch eggs. And the air, all heavy and bracing and wet. When you're driving, you wave to the old guy walking along the side of the road in the plaid flannel shirt and he waves back, because it's just what you do. This is an extraordinarily hospitable and musical place. You've got to haul wood in the winter and batten down hatches during hurricanes, and there are bagpipes and banjos and weathered old barns and whales offshore and abandoned fishing boats sleeping on the beach.”
Kate Inglis

“Jack Kerouac died after throwing up blood. The malt liquor. Then that other guy who shot his wife in the head. Burroughs somebody. And I wonder about literary figures. They're all drunk and staggering and haunting people today, I bet, still muttering and ranting in disassociated lines.

Or, I'm wondering about a middle ground with wooly blankets and nubbly cardigans and nobody shot in the head. Where yes, you are uniquely mad. But functionally uniquely mad. Endlessly absorbed but in the mildly scattered kind of way instead of in the crap-I-shot-my-wife-in-the-head kind of way. Unable to dedicate to another human being only in occasional fits.

Roald Dahl says you're a fool to become a writer, your only compensation being absolute freedom but then I'm not so sure about that. He bought a wagon from a Romanian gypsy and his kids played in it and I think he had more in the way of compensation than absolute freedom. He's got a point, though, even if he reached a point where his own point no longer applied to him. He had no master except his own soul, and that, he was sure, was why he did it.”
Kate Inglis

“Being in the CBC Studios in Edmonton and Calgary was like peeking into the little room where the bishop gets to eat his lunch. You know? It's the Canadian church. It's the common element that unites every kitchen, every batch of cookies, every afternoon with the crowbar or the mower, every road trip. I walked through the halls feeling like I should tiptoe and whisper, peeking everywhere I could peek — at rooms full of blinking lights, at people in headsets, wishing I could hug and thank them all. They work hard, and we need them so much. We need them to be valued, not only hugged and thanked.”
Kate Inglis

“I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where the two mutually inspire each other to live - if I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.”
Hayao Miyazaki

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L Engle

“The single most important lesson is this: Focus on clarity. Concentrate on precisions. Don’t worry about constructing beautiful sentences. Beauty comes from meaning, not language. Accuracy is the most effective style of all.”
David Gerald

“Someone told me once, ‘It’s time to get you a pair of overalls, boy.’ But I don’t believe in summing up nothin’ – I let my experiences speak for themselves – and even if I did, a synopsis should be singular. That’s why every time I go out to work in the fields, I work naked. It lets my neighbors speak of my experiences for me.”
M.C. Humphreys

“The witching hour, somebody had once whispered to her, was a special moment in the middle of the night when every child and every grown-up was in a deep deep sleep, and all the dark things came out from hiding and had the world all to themselves.”
Roald Dahl, The BFG
