About the Authors

Deborah L. Delaronde-Falk is Métis and lives in central Manitoba on a cattle ranch along the western shores of Lake Winnipegosis. She honours her Métis heritage by writing and publishing under her maiden name. Deborah’s twelve published stories (with the exception of Friendship Bay and The Rabbit’s Race) focus around Métis protagonists with story situations that she hopes will convey the way of life of the Métis people in both a historical and contemporary context. Louis Riel’s Day: The Fur Trade Project is Deborah’s twelfth book. Deborah was the first recipient of the Beatrice Mosionier Aboriginal Writer of the Year Award in 2015.

Virginia McCoy has been a painter for more than 30 years. She is self-taught, working primarily in gouache and transparent watercolours. A transplant from Northern Ontario, she now lives and works in Inverness, Nova Scotia. A woman of Ojibway, French and English ancestry, McCoy explores the lines and forms of the Eastern Woodland Legend school of painting. Her work appears in exhibits in Nova Scotia and in private collections throughout North America and Europe.
