My debut novel Daughters of Silence, (Goose Lane Editions, Fall 2019), set in Toronto and Addis Ababa, tells the story of Dessie, a bereaved and newly single Ethiopian-Canadian woman, and her struggle to come to terms with her fractured family and her own traumatic childhood.

I wish to acknowledge the support I’ve received for my writing over the years from the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
