DINA DESVEAUX is a fiction writer, freelance editor and academic researcher/writer. Her first novel, GARDEN OF THE GODS, was nominated in the best first novel category of the Atlantic Book Awards. She is the co-founder and host of the Halifax Wired Monks, a writers’ critique group.
Dina grew up in Chéticamp, where she fell in love with trees, bear cubs and moose. She blogs under the name TartanFrog–a celebratory tip of the hat to the interweaving of her French Acadian roots with the Celtic culture of Cape Breton. You can follow her musings about writing on her website.
