Genevieve Graham graduated from the University of Toronto in 1986 with a Bachelor of Music in Performance (playing oboe). Decades later, she fell in love with the genre of Historical Fiction and felt inspired to try writing something herself. That was in 2007, and she hasn’t stopped since. Fearing that Canadian History is in danger of being forgotten or delegated to textbooks and museums, she has dedicated herself to breathing life back into our past by weaving tales of adventure and love through and around important Canadian events. Both “Promises to Keep” (the Acadian Expulsion of 1755) and “Tides of Honour” (WWI and the Halifax Explosion) are Globe & Mail bestsellers, and she always has at least two more books on the go.
When Graham is not writing, she can be found relaxing with her husband, two grown daughters, and silly white dog, often tending the garden alongside a friendly flock of heritage chickens. She lives just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
