Portrait of the Author as a Young Reader

Anita Daher is an author, screenwriter, producer, show host and actor based in Winnipeg, MB. She has been entrenched in the book publishing industry since 1995 and has been published in print, audio and e-book format in Canada, the United States, and Europe. You Don’t Have to Die in the End is her fourteenth novel, and fifteenth book. Anita presents at conferences and schools across Canada and is past Chair of the Writers Union of Canada (TWUC). When not word-wrangling she enjoys inhabiting characters on stage and screen. 

Born in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Anita spent her childhood and the first two decades of her adult years moving every few years from one part of the country to the next. This wandering may have influenced her writing style. She has become known for bringing a strong sense of place into her stories. She feels that what she really writes about is “connection.”
