Beth Goobie grew up in Guelph, Ontario, where the appearance of a normal childhood hid many secrets. Beth moved to Winnipeg to attend university, became a youth residential treatment worker, and studied creative writing at the University of Alberta. Her first collection of poetry, Scars of Light, won the Pat Lowther Award for the best book of poetry by a Canadian woman. She is the author of 25 books, mainly for young adults, including The Pain Eater and the CLA-award-winning Before Wings. Beth makes her home in Saskatoon.
