The SIWC Storyeller’s Award
‘Sourdough’ was the runner-up in the 2016 Surrey International Writers’ Conference Storyteller’s Award, judged by Jack Whyte and Diana Gabaldon. Angela Post was born in the Yukon and grew up with her Brazilian mother and Latvian father in a mining town inhabited by about 500 people. She writes young adult and children’s books when not working as a psychologist. During her lunch-time walks around SFU, the character of the mountaindwelling prospector, or ‘sourdough’, began dogging her steps until she wrote about him. You can follow Angela on twitter @angspost.
