During Covid, I finished writing a biography of Louise de Kiriline Lawrence, a woman of many lives who retreated in midlife to a log cabin in the bush to study songbirds. I knew Louise during my wilderness years, so it’s a memoir, too, one that lays bare the process of piecing together another person’s life. Click on the cover of Woman, Watching to watch a documentary on Louise, read reviews, listen to excerpts, and more. You’ll find snippets from other works-in-progress in Passages.
