Originally from Newfoundland, Marc Colbourne comes by his love of storytelling and tea honestly. His writing is often influenced by his time spent working in Cuba, Bolivia and Guatemala and explores themes of social justice.
An avid reader of both Canadian and Latin American literature, he is happiest when surrounded by his ever-growing “to be read” pile. In his world, the announcement of the Giller Shortlist is cause for a much-anticipated vacation day from his day job.
He currently calls Edmonton, Alberta home.
