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 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 an emigration story of a family forced by illness and poverty, to leave the Isle of Man and take refuge with a brother in America. The eldest son leaves the family and buys land on Manitoulin Island, then, disappointed, ventures to Saskatchewan to pioneer. The introductory chapters of Time Enough will appear 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 currently appears in Her/Words, Alternating Current, Adelaide Literary Magazine, Poets' Choice and Oprelle's Anthology "Matter 2021."
