Deborah Joy Corey

Deborah Joy Corey is the sixth of seven children raised in rural Canada by a mother and father who instilled in their children a great love of storytelling. Corey did not begin writing until many years after she left New Brunswick––at 17––and worked in the fashion industry. She then married and moved to the U.S. Her muse arrived in the form of a tattered copy of Joyce Carol Oates’s The Wheel of Love in Switzerland, which inspired Corey to try her hand at the craft. Today, she is the author of two critically acclaimed novels Losing Eddie and The Skating Pond, and her many prize-winning short stories are printed in numerous anthologies and writing textbooks in both the U.S. and Canada. She now lives and writes in Castine, Maine, and returns regularly to Canada.
