My name is Cinda Gault, and I have an enduring interest in women’s lives. My undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Guelph led me to start an agency to help victims of domestic violence.
I followed up a stint as a prison guard with an M.A. degree in Criminology from the University of Toronto. Inspired to complete a Ph.D. in English from York University, I analyzed Canadian women’s writing from the “identity years” of 1965-1980.
For another book, I wondered why Canada was the only western country with no abortion law and found answers in literary depictions. My own fiction started with romance and developed into indie literary and historical fiction.
My stories envision tenacious women who will have their adventures, whether in the 19th-century wilderness or contemporary urban settings. Interest in female lives is taking a new turn as my spouse and I expand our tribe from two sons to two granddaughters!
