Jill Frayne’s first book, the travel memoir Starting Out in the Afternoon: A Midlife Journey Into Wild Land (Random House Canada, 2002) was lauded by The Globe and Mail as having writing that was “transcendental, ecstatic, as crisp and clear as Lake Superior in October”. It was a finalist for a Governor General’s Award. She has been published in The Walrus, Literary Review of Canada, Canadian Geographic, Up Here and Explore magazines, among others. Jill Frayne worked with kids and families in a counselling agency in northern Ontario for many years. She lives on a bush lot north of Parry Sound and spends winters in the wild mountains on the Yukon border. Her novel Say I Am is currently on offer.
