Gwen Davies grew up as an Air Force brat, exploring Europe in the family’s VW camper. Her stories appear in a number of literary magazines, US and Canada, and in 2013 she won The Antigonish Review’s Sheldon Currie Fiction Award. She teaches writing, and has run the Community of Writers retreat in Tatamagouche, NS, for fifteen years. In her sixties she took up parkour—learning to get past obstacles in the landscape and the mind—which put her on the front cover of Halifax Magazine. She lives and walks a lot in downtown Halifax.
Gwen’s collection of short stories Facing the Other Way will be published in August of 2016.
