STEPHEN KIMBER, a Professor of Journalism at the University of King’s College in Halifax, Canada and co-founder of King's MFA in Creative Nonfiction program, is an award-winning writer, editor and broadcaster.

His two most recent books include a novel — The Sweetness in the Lime (Nimbus, 2020) — and a work of nonfiction, Alexa! Changing the Face of Canadia Politics (Goose Lane, 2021).

Alexa is the biography of iconic Canadian feminist political leader Alexa McDonough.

Sweetness is a love story set in Havana, Halifax and Miami. It tells the story of Eli, a resolutely single, fiftysomething newspaper copy editor who spends his nights obsessing over reporters’ unnecessary “thats” and his days caring for a demented father he knows should be in t

Many of them assumed Jennifer must have been involved in what turned out to be a huge fraud and scandal. Bitcoin Widow is her story.(less)

I’d written more than half a dozen books at the time, including one novel, all set in Nova Scotia.
My wife suggested, over mojitos one sunny afternoon, that I expand my literary horizons and write something not based so close to home.
I returned to Cuba in 2009 planning to research a novel — a love story — but quickly got waylaid by a truth-is-more-urgent true tale of five Cuban spies then in prison in the US. That led to the 2013 publication of "What Lies Across the Water: The Real Story of the Cuban Five."
I finally returned to my Cuba novel, "The Sweetness in the Lime," which has now been published by Nimbus/Vagrant.
I think it’s a better book for the 10 years in between, largely because I got to spend a lot of time in Cuba, meeting people, seeing their lives, hearing their stories.
I like to think of myself as in my Cuba-ist period!
