Karen Dudley at Ottawa ChiSeries

ChiSeries Ottawa Presents: Karen Dudley, Robin Riopelle, and Scott Fotheringham on Tuesday, June 17 at 7pm at Maxwell's Bistro in Ottawa

To celebrate summer, come out for reading by three great writers!

KAREN DUDLEY didn’t know she was supposed to be a writer, so she studied everything from Greek history to ecology to Quaternary pollen analysis. Then she wrote a short stack of wildlife biology books and four environmental mystery novels before she decided that maybe she should be writing fantasy. Her first fantasy, Food for the Gods, was nominated for five awards including an Prix Aurora award for Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novel, a Bony Blithe Bloody Words Light Mystery award, and a High Plains book award in the Culinary Division. She will be reading from Kraken Bake, the newly-published sequel to Food for the Gods.

Born in Ottawa and raised on Canada’s west coast, ROBIN RIOPELLE’s life has been marked by adoption, separation, and reunion. Like many of her characters, she has a muddy past and a foot in (at least) two different worlds. She currently lives on the border between French and English Canada with her criminologist husband, two seemingly delightful children, and an obstreperous spaniel. She is a great supporter of the Oxford comma. In addition to writing fiction for adults, Riopelle also illustrates children’s books. Deadroads is her first novel.

SCOT T FOTHERINGHAM holds a PhD in molecular biology and genetics from Cornell University. He has co-authored scientific articles on molecular genetics, and closely studied the mechanisms of recombination using genetically engineered fungi, bacteria, and fruit flies. His first novel, The Rest Is Silence, was shortlisted for the Amazon First Novel Award, Dartmouth Book Award, and an Ottawa Book Award. Raised in Thornhill, Scott now lives and writes just outside Ottawa, where he is working on his second novel.
