In another century, Ann Shortell was an award-winning journalist, who wrote about how those in power react during times of great upheaval. Now, Ann’s young fictional scribe, Clara Swift, tangles with the powerful forces that shaped late 19th-century Canada. Ann’s Clara Swift Tales series will reimagine hinge-points in history through a female immigrant lens. Her debut novel, Celtic Knot, has garnered multiple awards, including the Whistler Independent Book Award for Fiction and the Ontario Indie Author Project Award for Adult Fiction. A coming-of-age herstory, Ann’s novel has been described as, "Alias Grace meets a dark, twisty Anne Of Green Gables".
