Book Description
Blasted is a story of Ruby Jones, an irreverent, exuberant, and troubled woman who lurches between love affairs and cities. The narrative shifts between generations and geographies, between contemporary life and stories as old as the hill that looms over Ruby’s birthplace. All the while, she is haunted by mysteries that surround her father and the generations before him. When Ruby unravels at last, she must face the demons that pursue her. Steeped in Newfoundland folklore, Blasted mines a rich vein of experience, layering the mundane and the magical, and evoking the forces that inhabit the land

About the Author
Kate Story is an independent artist: a performer, playwright and choreographer. She has worked with many well-known theatre directors, companies and choreographers and has created numerous independent works and collaborations. Kate has been twice nominated for the Ontario Arts Council's prestigious K.M. Hunter Artists Award (2004 and 2006), and in 2005, as part of Peterborough's centennial celebrations, she was named as one of the region's top 100 performing artists of the past century.

Kate comes from a literary Newfoundland lineage. Her father, Dr. George Story, authored the Dictionary of Newfoundland English. Her mother, L. Alice Story, was a creative writer and a musician. At sixteen, Kate attended the Lester B. Pearson College of the Pacific, after which she earned a B.A. Honours in Cultural Studies at Trent University. A number of her written works have been produced as plays, performance, collective works and theatre-dance productions. Presently, she works as a performing artist and as an arts administrator for Peterborough-based dance, theatre and community-based arts organizations.
