Raye Anderson is a Scots Canadian who spent many enjoyable years running theatre schools and creative arts programs, in Winnipeg (notable at Prairie Theatre Exchange), in Ottawa and in Calgary. Her work has taken her across Canada, coast to coast and up north to Yellowknife and Churchill. She has also worked as far afield as the West Indies and her native Scotland.
Now she lives in the beautiful Interlake as part of a thriving arts community. She draws, paints and writes crime fiction. Her first book, And We Shall Have Snow, was published by Signature Editions in August, 2020. It is set in the Interlake in the depths of winter and was a finalist for the Best First Crime Book Award, Crime Writers of Canada Awards of Excellence (what used to be the Arthur Ellis Awards). The second in the Roxanne Calloway series, And Then Is Heard No More, is set around a fictitious Winnipeg theatre and launches on June 18, 2021. Available at McNally Robinson, the Whodunnit Mystery Bookstore and Tergesen’s in Gimli.
