Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Ann Decter moved to Toronto to study, and after sojourns elsewhere--New York City, rural Nova Scotia--settled into Toronto's vibrant women's writing and publishing community. She has a B.A. in history and an M.Ed. in philosophy and over a decade of experience in feminist publishing. Decter was co-managing editor at Women's Press (Canada) from 1990-95--editing fiction, poetry, drama, and political theory. Currently, she is a freelance editor, teaches creative writing at George Brown College, and is a publisher at McGilligan Books, which she co-founded in 1994. The birth of her daughter Rosie in 1995, has renewed her interest in writing for children.
