Edie Ayala:
Edie Ayala is a baby boomer from a small logging town near the Canadian Rockies. As a girl, she once broke into a neighbour's house to play on their typewriter. She was the creative fort-builder, the abandoned mine-shaft explorer and the tree climber. She has never lost this spirit of curiosity and the search for the small things that might change a day... or a life. Just before Y2K, she made a trip to South America and it was a turning point. Married to a Chilean from the Atacama region, they decided to make Santiago, Chile their home and they've been there ever since. Their grown children are all settled in different cities in Canada and the UK.Edie writes character-driven novels. She's a fan of quirky. A people-watcher, she might find inspiration from someone at a bus stop or a grocery store. Once in awhile, as if from nowhere, a compelling new character appears out of the page itself, and hijacks the process.Edie spends her free time reading non-fiction books and listening to podcasts that present a twist in the traditional interpretation of historical events. She is a fan of authors such as José Saramago, Barbara Kingsolver, Anthony Doer, Alix Olin, Louis de Barnieres, Hernan Rivera Letelier and David Sedaris.
