About the Authors
Georgina Olivere Queller: Childless and now dogless she has run out of excuses for not doing things. A member of the Guild since the beginning of the last decade of the last century, she likes to read, write, play games online, and spend time with her friends; all of which she does in an obsessive manner.

Roberta Buchanan was born in South Africa and educated in England before immigrating to Canada in 1964. She taught English and Women’s Studies at Memorial University and is now Professor Emerita. Poet and memoirist, she has published a book of poetry, I Moved All My Women Upstairs. A non-fiction work, The Woman Who Mapped Labrador: The Life and Expedition Diary of Mina Hubbard, co-authored with Anne Hart and Bryan Greene, was shortlisted for the Winterset Award for excellence in Newfoundland writing.

Geraldine Chafe Rubia writes poetry, plays, and prose. She has won awards in each category and is published in periodicals and anthologies. Her plays have been performed on stage and on CBC radio. With the Longside Club she has initiated performing arts opportunities for persons with disabilities. She is co-editor of From This Place and has published two books of poetry, A Poem in My Soup and Skating Among the Graves.
