Iona Whishaw

Iona Whishaw has been a youth worker, social worker, teacher and an award-winning High School Principal -- who continued with her writing throughout her working life. Receiving her Masters in Creative Writing from UBC, Iona has published short fiction, poetry, poetry translation and one children's book: "Henry and the Cow Problem." The Lane Winslow mystery series is her first foray into adult fiction. Her current effort, "An Old Cold Grave," is the third in a series.

Iona was born in Kimberley BC, but grew up in a number of different places including a small community on Kootenay Lake, as well as Mexico, Central America and the US because of her father's geological work. She took a degree in history and education from Antioch College and subsequent degrees in Writing at UBC and pedagogy at Simon Fraser University. Her own writing output took a brief back seat during her teaching career, but she shared her passion for writing by nurturing a love of writing in the students in English, Creative Writing and Spanish classes. During the course of her career as a principal in Vancouver, she was awarded the Woman of Distinction in Education by the YWCA, in 2010, and Canada's Outstanding Principals award, in 2012.
