And yes, disclosure: Melanie and I recently studied creative writing at the University of B.C., in the Master of Fine Arts program. We were in different streams, but the Saskatchewan writing community is so supportive that we've grown to know each other better here than we did during our optional residency graduate programs in Vancouver.
Congrats, Melanie — and you know you have an open invitation for an in-depth interview here on Latitude Drifts! I am fascinated by the back-story of this novel. (And by the writing, too!)
