Some of my friends love to be photographed; others duck and run (a reaction I well understand). Whichever category Brenda Schmidt will admit to belonging in, I am delighted that she posed for me at the launch of her latest collection Grid (Hagios Press).

Brenda is a writer, visual artist and blogger based in Creighton, Saskatchewan.

She's a powerful poet, with haunting images and a wicked, dry sense of humour. And she's a naturalist, too.

As a new birder, I'm enjoying the range in this collection: Bobolinks, ravens, swallows, plovers, terns, chickadees, gulls, Ruddy Turnstones, Great Horned Owls ... A Buff-breasted Sandpiper! No way! ... This Is My Brain On Birds. 

(That last line is the title of one of her poems. Amazing poem.)

 Thanks, Brenda! I'm a happy reader of your book
