I am a Canadian writer and artist. I am a co-editor of Outside of Ordinary: Women’s Travel Stories. I write short fiction and novels, and particularly like the genres of literary fiction, fantasy, steampunk, thriller, and magic realism, as well as poetry. I am currently working on a series of Young Adult Fantasy books and have recently completed a novel called The Weather Speller in which the camp cook controls the tree planters with her cooking and her manipulation of weather. I have three university degrees: a Bachelor of Arts in Geography / French and a Master of Arts in English Literature from the University of Western Ontario, and a Bachelor of Education from Queen's University.

Thank you to Mrs. Baker for inviting me to her soup kitchen to cook and chat!


The Curious Adventures Of Messrs Smith And Skarry


Hello! Mrs Albert Baker here, otherwise known as The Last Witch Of Pendle. Obviously there is no Pendle any more, since The Chronic Agronauts utterly destroyed it with treacle and sprats, but I’ve set myself up quite nicely here in Lancaster, running this little so...

“No writing is wasted. Did you know that sourdough from San Francisco is leavened partly by a bacteria called lactobacillus sanfrancisensis? It is native to the soil there, and does not do well elsewhere. But any kitchen can become an ecosystem. If you bake a lot, your kitchen will become a happy home to wild yeasts, and all your bread will taste better. Even a failed loaf is not wasted. Likewise, cheese makers wash the dairy floor with whey. Tomato gardeners compost with rotten tomatoes. No writing is wasted: the words you can't put in your book can wash the floor, live in the soil, lurk around in the air. They will make the next words better.”

“Interest is never enough. If it doesn't haunt you, you'll never write it well. What haunts and obsesses you may, with luck and labour, interest your readers. What merely interests you is sure to bore them. (from Workbook)”
Steven Heighton

Holly Luhning
“Watch it, your sanity. Watch the line. What I don’t say is that the line is hardly there. It’s as blurry and fluid as the slope of the shore, from beach to the shallows to water over your head to the open sea. And I’m not really supposed to believe in that spectrum…..But we’re all there on the slope. I think the difference is whether you’ve maneuvered yourself into a position where your head’s above the sea.”
Holly Luhning, Quiver
