About the author (1995)

Kate Braid has had a diverse career including secretary, carpenter, teacher and writer. Her first book of poems "Covering Rough Ground" won the Pat Lowther Award for best book of poetry by a Canadian woman. Her second, "To This Cedar Fountain", was nominated for the BC Book Prize, and her third, "Inward to the Bones: Georgia O'Keeffe's Journey with Emily Carr", won the Vancity Book Prize. In 2005 she co-edited with Sandy Shreve "In Fine Form: The Canadian Book of Form Poetry". Braid has also written several non-fiction books and essays. She lives in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Braid is a devoted (to say the least) fan of Glenn Gould--and of J.S. Bach.
