Genevieve Graham is the USA Today, Globe & Mail and Toronto Star  #1 bestselling author of several Canadian Historical Fiction novels, including #1 Instant National Bestsellers LETTERS ACROSS THE SEA, BLUEBIRD, and THE FORGOTTEN HOME CHILD, which held the #1 position across the country for 11 weeks in 2020, and was the #4 bestselling Canadian novel of the year.

Genevieve graduated from the University of Toronto in 1986 with a Bachelor of Music in Performance on the Oboe, but did not pursue music as a career other than to teach piano to dozens of neighbourhood children. Instead, she held a number of positions, from advertising and marketing to fundraising, then left it all for her most challenging role as a stay-at-home mom. In 2007, Genevieve decided to try her hand at writing a book, using everything she’d learned from years of reading historical fiction.

Then following year, she and her family moved to Nova Scotia, where she was suddenly surrounded by Canadian history she knew nothing about. She dove into research, alarmed by what she’d never learned, and since then has made it her mission to bring Canadian history to life. She currently lives outside Edmonton, Alberta, with her husband, two daughters, and two cats. Genevieve’s next book, “The Secret Keeper”, is set to be published in April 2024.
