Myrl Coulter. Born and raised in Manitoba, Myrl Coulter lives and writes in Edmonton, Alberta. She holds a PhD from the University of Alberta, where she taught English.

"The book spans a single calendar year, but Coulter says what it’s really about is the process of living through the same dates and events, time and time again, even as our experiences of them change dramatically as we age." [Full article at http://bit.ly/1E0p6TF]

"A Year of Days is light without ever treading Hallmark grounds, funny while still acknowledging the gravitas of death and full of the remembered warmth or loss of not only the 'special' days, but also the days that lie around them by the hundreds: days at the lake, Mexican holidays and days in which we simply move and live. 'Keep moving,' Coulter writes. 'Movement is life.'"
