I love theatre, history and non-fiction books. So it made sense to me to start to write in 1991 about Canadian theatre performer E. Pauline Johnson-Tekahionwake (b. 1861 – d. 1913). Miss Johnson’s extraordinary life as a performing poet ticked all my boxes…theatre/history/non-fiction.
When Natural Heritage Press of Toronto, Ontario put me under contract for my Pictorial biography about Miss Johnson, I became an author.
1997 saw the publication of BUCKSKIN & BROADCLOTH: A Celebration of E. Pauline Johnson.
