Zoë Landale has published eight books, edited two books, and her work appears in over fifty anthologies. Her writing has won significant awards in three genres, including first in the Stony Brook University Short Fiction competition, National Magazine Gold for memoir, and first in the CBC Literary Competition for poetry. A former President of the Federation of BC Writers, she has a Master's degree in Fine Arts from the University of British Columbia.

Landale taught for fifteen years as a faculty member in the Creative Writing Department at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Vancouver, British Columbia. She now lives on Pender Island. After retiring from teaching she crewed for three years on the Marine Search and Rescue boat. Now she is writing speculative fiction for all ages with an emphasis on Norse mythology and interesting magic and is educating herself in indie publishing. Oh yes, and there's the daily walks with a bouncy Golden Doodle and looking after a large garden.
