Last Friday we were lucky enough to have a CEC alumna, and published author, speak to a couple of English classes. She spoke about the craft of writing and shared her expertise with several grade 11 and 12 students.
Kate, who graduated from CEC in 1989, grew up in rural Nova Scotia with only her imagination and the Bay of Fundy to keep her entertained. That imagination was encouraged by her mother, and Kate began writing at age eight. She’s published more than 50 books under different pen names, including What Unbreakable Looks Like, Daughter, and Pieces of Me. She, her husband Steve, and her four fur-kids live in Connecticut.
Please stop by the CEC library and check out Kate’s aforementioned novels.
