Jenny Gates

I began my writing career at the Australian Museum in Sydney where I co-authored several scientific catalogues and was editor of international scientific publications. Here in Winnipeg, I
work as a substantive book editor, and write plays, screenplays, fiction and non-fiction books, articles, speeches, stories, blogs, and occasionally even poetry. Side interests include music,
photography, and exploring the neighbourhood. With a bit of luck, by the end of 2021, I’ll have finally renovated my website, and published my first non-fiction book.
