Sue Farrell Holler writes for children of all ages – from preschool to young adult.
Her YA novel, Cold White Sun, was a 2019 finalist for a Governor General’s Award literary award. The novel, based on the true story of an illegal refugee, also won an Alberta Literary Award — the R. Ross Annett Award for Children’s Literature and a U.S-based High Plains Book Award.
Her other titles include the middle grade novel Lacey and the African Grandmothers that’s set on a First Nation’s reserve, and three picture books. Her latest work is “Raven, Rabbit, Deer,” which introduces Ojibwemowin vocabulary. “Finding Moose” is set for publication in the spring of 2022.
A journalist by profession, she writes books for children that acknowledge our critical need for human connection.
Her work for adults as a feature writer and newspaper humour columnist has appeared in local, regional and national publications.
