Carolyn Pogue

Imagination * Passion * Creative Flair

Carolyn Pogue is a Canadian author, editor and workshop presenter who lives in Calgary, Alberta which is Treaty 7 Territory and Metis Region 3. Her titles include books for teachers, children, adults and teens.

Her Young Adult historical novels, Gwen and the sequel, West Wind Calling were inspired by the life of E. Pauline Johnson/Tekahion-Wake, and her own grandmother, a British Home Child. Gwen was short listed for the City of Calgary Book Prize. West Wind Calling was selected as a Best Book for Kids and Teens by The Canadian Children’s Book Centre.

Carolyn has travelled to many countries of the world and is inspired by peacemakers and justice-seekers of all ages. She lived in Ontario, Quebec and Northwest Territories/Denendeh before settling in Alberta.

Carolyn enjoys camping, reading, playing around with paint, fabric, wood, paper and working with writers of all ages. With her husband, Bill Phipps, she serves on Raffi’s Child Honouring Advisory Council.
