It’s no secret that I’m a redhead. As a kid, I wasn’t so fond of the hair that made me different. As an adult, I now appreciate my gingerness but feel like maybe I needed to grow into it, to be comfortable in my own skin before I could embrace having hair that made me stand out. It took a long time to realize it was an essential part of me, what made me me.
So when I heard about the opportunity to participate in an anthology by and about redheads, especially Canadian redheads, a club of which I am a very proud member, I was stoked to join in.
The result is my story SEEING RED which is included in this awesome anthology, CANADIAN GINGER from Oolichan Books, edited by Kim Clarkand Dawn Marie Kresan. SEEING RED is a sassy and tongue-in-cheek look at some of the stereotypes all redheads have endured at one time or another.
I hope you’ll check it out and enjoy not just my short story, but the essays, poems, and fiction that embrace the redhead experience.
