Bio Lise Pomerleau-Mayne is a writer living in the shelter of the Porcupine Hills in Southern Alberta. Lise loves the prairie sky, the winds, the landscape, flora and fauna of the prairies. She writes historical fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction. A French educator for over thirty years, Lise believes it is important to hold on to our heritage but also to explore and appreciate the beauty of all cultures. Her first novel Becoming Sand explored the 400 year history of her Francophone family in Canada. Lise has completed her second novel of historical fiction, entitled Time Enough. Set in the early 1900's, it is a family saga of a mother and her eldest son who must lead the family from the Isle of Man to America. A story of betrayal and struggle through three decades, the mother and her son eventually find forgiveness and independence in this unfamiliar world. The introductory chapters of Time Enough appeared in Sunspot Literary magazine 2022, in both digital and print form, as a finalist in the Rigel Contest. Lise also writes poetry. In 2020, two of her poems were selected for Honourable Mention and publication in the National Capital Writing contest anthology "Building Community" to commemorate the 100th anniversary of CAA. Her poetry appears in several literary magazines in the U.S. and Canada.
