About the Author
Born 63 years ago in the ‘steel-town’ city of Hamilton, in the eastern province of Ontario, Canada, Marcia Mae Nelson Pedde has been a poet and short story writer for as long as she can remember. Encouraged and supported by her family, Marcia continued to write throughout her life. Writing primarily through journaling, there were always poems to craft for special occasions – family birthdays and anniversaries – and for people whom she had the privilege to encounter in ways that inspired and delighted her. Marcia, her husband and two teenage sons traveled west to Vancouver, British Columbia for the international Expo ’86. Taking a ferry ride across to Vancouver Island, the entire family fell in love with the island and especially with the city of Victoria. Marcia was determined that she would eventually call Victoria home. Both her sons moved west to Vancouver 12 years later. It took Marcia 22 years, the end of one marriage and the blessing of another, the marriage of her eldest boy and the birth of her first grandchild to all unfold before she was able to find her way west. Marcia, with her husband Mike, now proudly calls Victoria home. This, the first of her published works, is Marcia’s gift to the city of Victoria and an honouring of Victoria’s spiritual retreat centre known as Queenswood. Marcia, always the traveler, is happily growing roots in the City of Gardens.
