Lynn Coady was born in Sydney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and grew up in Port Hawkesbury, Cape Breton. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Carleton University and earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing from the University of British Columbia in 1997. In addition to a nomination for the Governor General's Award for fiction in 1998 for her first novel, "Strange Heaven," Coady's works have earned her numerous nominations and awards. Coady has taught creative writing at Simon Fraser University and in other venues, and she has worked as a freelance writer and journalist, publishing works of fiction and non-fiction in a range of anthologies and periodicals.
