Annette Lapointe was born on the coldest day of 1978 in Saskatoon. She lived in rural Saskatchewan, Quebec City, St John’s, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and South Korea before migrating to Grande Prairie, AB, where it’s cold most of the time but the wildlife comes right up to the door and asks to come in. She has published two award-winning novels: Stolen (2006) and Whitetail Shooting Gallery (2012). Her short story collection You Are Not Needed Now will be published by Anvil Press in July of 2017.

Lapointe completed her PhD in Contemporary Literature in 2010. She now teaches literature and creative writing at Grande Prairie Regional College and edits The Waggle magazine.
