Author: Frances Backhouse

I am a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists, the Canadian Science Writers' Association, and The Writers Union of Canada and an alumnus of the Institutes for Journalism & Natural Resources (IJNR), having attended the July 2009 Puget Sound Institute. In 2008, I was Writer in Residence at Berton House in Dawson City, Yukon, for three months.

My favourite leisure activities include gardening, singing, and exploring wild places. I live in Victoria, British Columbia, with fellow writer Mark Zuehlke.
