Member Profile

Gail Hamilton

Gail is a graduate of the University of Toronto and winner of the Air Canada Most Promising Young Writer Award. She has had a varied career which includes teaching English, copywriting, short stories, novelization of the popular Road to Avonlea TV series for HarperCollins, creation of nonfiction reference books for the profit and nonprofit sectors, and several lively romance novels for Harlequin and other publishers.

Her interest in Canada’s little known tales has led to The Tomorrow Country, a historical novel, set in 1870s London. The story explores the roots of the Home Children movement which brought over 100,000 orphaned or destitute youngsters to Canada to start new lives and create almost four million present day descendants. Along with the street children of London, a cast of reformers, rebels, misfits and castoffs battle the social constraints of those turbulent times, turning away from Britain at her peak to become Canadians-in-the-making. 

Gail has returned to live in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, where she was raised.
