Janet Parker Vaughan
Janet Parker Vaughan (née Kinsman) was born in Middleton NS, and grew up on an apple and dairy farm in the beautiful Annapolis Valley. After school days in Bridgetown, she graduated from Acadia University in chemistry, but later took up literary studies at Western University in London, Ontario.
For several years she worked ecumenically and as an officer of the Anglican Church of Canada in global advocacy and education. In this calling she had the great privilege of relating to justice communities across Canada and on three continents.
As a writer, she has taken a special interest in the recovery of the devalued feminine in local and global cultures. Her work is rooted in her fascination with the spiritual mystery of unfolding life in its suffering and joys, its patterns, cycles and syndromes.
Janet came home to the Valley to live in Middleton. Her daughter Suzy lives nearby. Her dear husband Edward is recently deceased.
Moose House is proud to publish Janet's first book, Seven Shifts.
