Lulu Keating has been writing for over 35 years. As a filmmaker, she has written eight feature length screenplays (two have been produced) and numerous short fiction scripts. For several years, Keating had a regular column for What’s Up Yukon, featuring profiles of colourful characters and visitors to her home town, Dawson City Yukon. She has also had work published in The Globe and Mail, the Journal of Canadian Studies, Geist Magazine and Yukon: North of Ordinary.
The middle child of eleven, Keating was born and raised in Antigonish Nova Scotia. Her family was the focus of her award-winning animated film, The Moody Brood, co-produced with CBC Television. As a university student, Keating volunteered in the Congo Zaire. This pivotal experience inspired the movie she wrote and directed, The Midday Sun. While she continues to make at least one film a year, Keating is currently adapting Klondike Kalahari, her screenplay, into a novel with the same name.
