In 1999, Deborah Carr escaped the cubicle life of a federal servant and found her way into the wide-open-spaces life of a professional freelance writer. Since then, she has written for reams of magazines covering topics on everything from peregrine falcons and shorebirds to caribou and salmon, from bakers and woodcarvers to taxidermists and fisherwomen. She even managed to win an award or two in the process.
Deborah also delivers creative writing workshops, muddles about with websites, and helps corporate, government and non-profit clients tell a good story. She has served on the Board of Directors for the WFNB and is the former-president of the Moncton Chapter, Professional Writers’ Association of Canada (PWAC).
She has been known to dance in the rain, roll in the snow and slide in the mud.
