Author’s note. Having earned my BA at Western University, I graduated with MA and PhD from the University of Alberta, where I was  coordinator of the Canadian Studies program, and had the pleasure of associating with some of the finest students on campus. One thread of my lineage, maternally, descends from the Six Nations on the Grand River, Ontario, near Brantford. Squire Davis and Jennet Ferguson are my great-great grandparents. The Mohawk Trilogy concerns one year in their lives, June 1845 to June 1846. I am the gggg-granddaughter of Kanyen’kéha/Mohawk Peter the Runner – He who brings the news. (Family bibles provide an invaluable record of our maternal family’s lineage. Bibles, documenting Davises and Burrs, track known family members living on this continent directly back to the 17th century.)

My father was born and raised in Montréal, one of Canada’s premier cities.

Lifetime residents of Edmonton (another river city), family members identify as Albertans and, of course, curious Canadians 🇨🇦. As well as folktales and drama, my theory of culture-club socialization underscores Squire-Davis historical fiction.
