Pamela (Cat) Delaney is a widely published journalist, humourist, and award-winning poet and playwright, who also writes fiction, non-fiction satire, screenplays, and web copy. An avid theatre-goer, classical guitarist, and badminton-player, she lives near the sea in Nova Scotia with three wicked, proofreading cats, her collie, Fiona, who has an IQ higher than hers, and she (Cat, not Fiona) recently reunited with her sweetheart from high school (coming to a theatre near you…). Published in the likes of the Globe and Mail, Homemakers magazine, the Guelph Mercury, Coastal Life magazine, Dogs in Canada magazine, Where Toronto, Performance Racing News, and On Track, Ms. Delaney is a regular contributor of text and photographs to the Michelin Green Guides and the D.K. Eyewitness travel guides. Ms. Delaney’s next book, a non-fiction satire that fricassees motivational gurus, will be published in autumn 2012. She is the winner of the 2009 Samuel French Canadian Playwriting Competition for her full-length satire, Welfarewell.
