Anita Daher

Anita Daher draws writing inspiration from the many places she’s been fortunate to spend time, including Summerside, PEI; Yellowknife, NT; Churchill, MB; Baker Lake, NU and Sault Ste. Marie, ON. Since 1995 she has been entrenched in the book publishing industry writing books, articles and reviews, and leading workshops and presentations. She has worked on occasion as marketing director, editor, and radio broadcaster, and is currently associate teen book editor at Great Plains Publications. When she’s not working with books she enjoys playing her guitar, and riding her horse. Anita divides her time between Winnipeg, MB, and a small Francophone community in Manitoba’s cottage country.
