WILD grew up in a dark, rambling farmhouse in the wilds of Canada where there was nothing to do but read Edgar Allan Poe and watch PBS mysteries. Naturally these macabre interests blossomed into a career in advertising and film, and more recently, crime writing. Wild is currently working on her second novel, The Bone Conspiracy, which won “Highly Commended” in The Cheshire Novel Prize 2023.
Her debut novel, Strange Things Done, was a CBC “The Next Chapter” book recommend in 2020 after winning the Crime Writers of Canada (CWC) Award of Excellence for “Best First Novel” and co-winning Women in Film’s “From Our Dark Side” genre writing competition in 2017 (Canada).
Wild has published several award-winning short stories and has written, directed, and co-produced two award-winning short films. The author resides on an island in the Salish Sea named after the bones of lost whales.
Wild is represented by agent Oli Munson at A.M. HEATH Literary Agents in London, UK.
Wild's debut, Strange Things Done, is published in Canada by Dundurn Press.
