Gail Sidonie Sobat
is a witch at heart, a pirate in her dreams, and a gypsy in practice. She has assumed any number of disguises in her lifetime, including that of teacher, professor, woman-in-black, professional actor and singer, grounds keeper, flag girl, parimutuel seller and flower seller. Currently, she is the coordinator of YouthWrite, a camp for kids who love to write...just about anything!© and an instructor in the writing program of Grant MacEwan University. She has moved twenty-seven times in her life from Badlands to Siksika Nation Reserve to hideous suburbs to Istanbul to the Sunshine Coast to her writer’s garret in a century-old temperamental house.
