by kelly on November 1, 2012

Catherine McKenzie’s novel Forgotten tells the story of  a woman who returns home after a six-month journey to find that everyone she knows believed she was dead and has moved on without her. Publisher’s Weekly recently called her a “force to be reckoned with in women’s fiction.” Welcome, Catherine!

What is your favorite quality in a person?


What is your least favorite?


What is your greatest fear?

That my tendency to overthink things keeps me from doing things I should.

Who is your greatest love?

 Can’t pick just one. My family. My friends.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

 It’s fall and sunny and the leaves are turning. It’s warm, but the air is crisp. The day is calling: come run in me.

What place do you love?

 Many places, but Montreal is way up there.

If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?

 If skills and reality weren’t a factor—an astronaut.

Which person, living or dead, do you most admire?

 Someone I don’t even know, whose life is hell but is cheerful anyway.

What are the words you live by?

 Make time for the things you love.
