Meg Dallas Edwards has lived in Baie Verte, NB, for the last fourteen years. For ten of those years she wrote for the Times and Transcript as a council reporter and freelance contributor. Meg graduated from the University of Toronto in 1986 with a double major in English Literature and Women’s Studies. In 2012 she added a certificate in Library Studies from Memorial University to her résumé. When the Library Studies Certificate did not produce a library job and all freelancers were cut off from work at the Times and Transcript Meg began her own blog, painfullyaboutme.wordpress.com, which has been simplified over time to the less humble AboutMeg. Meg is currently at work on her first novel, A Good Time to be a Woman.
