This feature highlights and introduces the works of Canadian YA authors. I’m doing this mostly for self-education because unfortunately I’m not all that aware of the amazing talent that exists in my own country.
Author Blurb: While not Canadian born, Erin Bow now lives and writes in Kitchener, Ontario with her husband (also a YA author). Initially writing poetry for adults, Bow’s most recent novel Plain Kate has catapulted her to the forefront of YA literature. As a historical fantasy, Plain Kate highlights Bow’s interest in storytelling and the magic of language and has received positive reviews from journals and bloggers alike. She has several young adult projects on the go and also offers editing for new young adult authors. Bow is also the winner of the CBC Canadian Literary Award.
