Author Bio

Genevieve Graham is the bestselling author of “Tides of Honour”, “Promises to Keep”, “Come From Away”, and “At the Mountain’s Edge”.  She is passionate about breathing life into Canadian History — especially those important moments which might be forgotten over time. To do that she writes captivating stories of love and adventure set in Canada, and she always has about three new books on the go.  She graduated from the University of Toronto in 1986 with a Bachelor of Music in Performance (playing the oboe). While on a ski vacation in Alberta, she met her future husband in a chairlift lineup and subsequently moved to Calgary to be with him. In 2008, they resettled in a quiet seaside village in Nova Scotia with their two beautiful daughters and their little white dog, and have since moved to Halifax.

Canadian Press Release

Canadian Debut Author beats Odds, breaks into World of U.S. Publishing.

One of only seven Canadians published by Penguin U.S., and the only Nova Scotian, debut author Genevieve Graham is impressing the leaders of one of  the biggest publishing houses in the world.

Halifax, Nova Scotia - February 21, 2012 - It is extremely rare for Penguin U.S. to contract a Canadian author, especially during these unsettled economic times within the publishing world. Genevieve Graham has beaten the odds. In addition to publishing Ms Graham’s first book, Penguin U.S. has contracted her to write a second and is considering her third. Graham is one of only seven Canadians published by this publishing giant, and her sales are impressive. 

The author, who never even dreamed of writing a book only five years ago, is extremely pleased with the book’s reception. “When they told me they’d ordered a second printing before it even hit bookstore shelves, I was shocked.” 

No stranger to the arts, Genevieve holds a Bachelor of Music in Performance from the University of Toronto. Shifting to a different art and becoming an author came as a surprise to Ms Graham. “When my daughters were little, I was too busy with them to even think about writing—or reading, to be honest. When I turned forty, I picked up a wonderful book, lost myself in the adventures, then longed for more. So I decided to see if I could actually write my own.”

“Under the Same Sky”, the first book she has ever written, was published January 2012 and is available at bookstores around the world.

Born in Toronto, Ms Graham settled in Musquodoboit Harbour, Nova Scotia with her family four years ago. She divides her working hours between writing new bestsellers, running her editing business, and teaching piano to local children.
