2010 David Adams Richards Prize Winner

2011 CBC-Scotiabank Giller Prize Readers’ Choice Contest Top 10

2012 Honourable Mention, Eric Hoffer Award Finalist (General Fiction)

The Writers' Union of Canada's Short Prose Competition Finalist 2005 & 2007, and many others.

Award winning short story collection that captures pivotal moments—of childhood, adolescence, parenthood, and beyond--in the under-appreciated world of women. Disparate decades, genders, and narrative voices woven together by themes of sex, death, guilt, social prejudice.

And love, always love.

A girl discovers a fear of heights as her parents’ marriage unravels; a thirty-something venture fund manager frets over his daughter’s paternity; an orphan whose hands kill whatever they touch is accused of homophobia; a suicidal daycare worker has a very bad day; a mother of two can only bear to consider abortion in the second person; the wife of a retirement-aged professor finds him unconscious near his computer. The 14 stories of The Meaning Of Children speak to all who—though aware the world can be a very dark place—can’t help but long for redemption.

“Profound...a writer of such substance that she is obviously headed to the top echelon of writers of our time...a book of rare sensitivity and masterful creative writing [that] must surely be shared with as many friends and fellow readers as possible.”
~Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Reviewer, ***** (5 stars) on

"I can still see you" (PART 7 of The Short and Wonderful Life of Henry Hemingway) was one of the winning entries in the 2001 Lyndall Hadow/Donald Stuart Short Story Competition by the Fellowship of Australian Writers. The Judge’s Report stated: “… you have to publish a story that ends with the lines 'Thanks Sybil. I can still see you with that big, black, stinking cigar in your mouth. Naked and very attractive”.

Henry Miller’s son Tony wrote about The Short and Wonderful Life of Henry Hemingway: Dear Fred … I rushed immediately to the manuscript and began reading with wild abandon … I can see clearly your influences … And I really laughed out loud about our casual meeting. You have such a good way with words … I am totally delighted by your book. You have captured certain essences and smells and ways of doing things … I am sure The Short and Wonderful Life of Henry Hemingway will be a wonderful success. All the best, Tony Miller

About this book:
Fred's single-minded search for a muse, his struggle with his demons and his refreshingly unique literary voice make his memoirs a brilliant book, a page-turner, provocatively humorous and acutely reflective.

Author’s Comment:
Everything about Mona, the girls, the toolmakers, IBM, boxing, Schopenhauer, sex and all the stuff that happened in Berlin, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and in the Canadian woods is true – as true as these things can be.

Somewhere along the way Henry Hemingway joined me. Sometimes we travelled together, sometimes he was nowhere to be found. In Bon Echo we met Merrill Denison. He told us about Ernest Hemingway with whom he had worked at the Toronto Star. In Los Angeles we stayed with Anita Alma and her daughters Rosa and Martha. Without Anita’s hospitality things would have looked pretty bleak. We met Henry Miller’s son Tony in Pacific Palisades. This was a fateful meeting. Henry Hemingway had initiated it. In the background I could hear Tony’s father hammering away on a typewriter. Without Tony, who knows, Henry Hemingway may still be around today. He would probably be an alcoholic or a famous writer. Maybe both.

I have recorded the conversations with these people exactly the way I remember them. All other names in this story are invented. For those who think they recognize themselves, may I suggest that you pretend everything is fiction. That worked for me. It still works for me and is also pretty true.
