Eden Robinson grew up with her older brother and younger sister in Haisla territory near Kitamaat Village, surrounded by the forests and mountains of the central coast of British Columbia. After earning her B.A., Eden Robinson moved to Vancouver to look for work that would allow her to spend time writing. Encouraged by the success of her first published story Traplines, she enrolled in and eventually graduated from the creative writing program at the University of British Columbia. Eden holed herself up in her Vancouver apartment to write Monkey Beach. Critics in the US, the UK and Canada were unanimous in their appreciation of the book. Eden Robinson has been a Writer-in-Residence at the Whitehorse Public Library, and will be working with the Writers in Electronic Residence program, which links schools across the country with professional writers. She presents Son Of A Trickster.
