Ursula Pflug
Ursula Pflug is author of the critically acclaimed novel Green Music. She is an award winning writer of literary and genre short fiction, with over fifty publications in Canada, the US and the UK. The stories in her long awaited collection After The Fires have all been previously published, except for one. Born in Tunis, she grew up in Toronto and attended the Ontario College of Art and the University of Toronto. She has travelled widely, to Germany, France, Italy, Tunisia, and throughout Canada and the United States. She has lived in New York City and in Hawaii. She was a contributing editor at The Peterborough Review for three years and continues to write book reviews and criticism for diverse markets in Canada and the US. She has had four plays professionally produced for stage, either as a solo author or as co-writer. She has also written for independent film. Currently she teaches short fiction at Loyalist College's Continuing Education program. She is a KM Hunter and Pushcart prize nominee, and has been generously funded by the Ontario Arts Council, the Laidlaw Foundation and the Canada Council for the Arts. She received a Canada Council grant in 2007 for a novel-length flash fiction project, Motion Sickness. In her alleged spare time she grows organic fruits and vegetables and explores inter-dimensional portals. She lives on the Ouse River in Norwood, which might explain a lot.

"Ursula Pflug's stories are the kind you want to carry around with you for those days when it feels like you're living in a strange and incomprehensible world; her stories will make you feel less alone. They are wondrous and unique little creatures that desire nothing more than to play fetch with your weirdest dreams. They are wild inventions built of words and sentences that dig into your psyche and send back reports about all you never knew of the world. They are sly and joyous, scary and entrancing, profound, unsettling, amusing, and utterly -- perfectly! -- unique."
-Matthew Cheney, editor of Best American Fantasy
