Shauna Singh Baldwin is the author of three novels: What the Body Remembers, The Tiger Claw and The Selector of Souls. Her short fiction collections are: English Lessons and Other Stories, and We Are Not in Pakistan. Her awards include The Writers’ Union of Canada prize for short fiction, the CBC Literary Prize, The Friends of American Writers Prize, the Commonwealth Prize for Best Book (Canada-Caribbean), and a shortlisting for Canada’s Giller Prize. 

Shauna's short fiction, poetry, and essays have been published in literary magazines in the U.S.A., Canada, and India. She has been an independent radio host and producer, a systems project manager, and a restaurateur -- all of which fed her need to tell stories. She completed intense writing fellowships at the Banff Centre for the Arts and four residency fellowships at the Ragdale Foundation. 

Shauna received her MBA from Marquette University, and her MFA from the University of British Columbia. Her play, We Are So Different Now premiered in Canada in 2016. Reluctant Rebellions: new and selected non-fiction was published in 2016. These days, she is mentoring new novelists and working on another novel.
