Casey Plett: cover story in Quill and Quire
In talking about the protagonist of "Enough Trouble," one of the stories in the collection, Casey says: "Where I grew up in Manitoba, as well as Oregon, both discouraged key parts of myself in their own ways, but both places also made me who I am. Gemma’s upbringing was homophobic and transphobic and this was traumatic, yes, but part of her upbringing was also moving and gentle and filled with grace. Gemma and I have different life histories. But I do feel the same way about my own experiences."
Casey also talks about the impact of winning the $60,000 Amazon Canada First Novel Award for her 2018 book Little Fish, as well as her latest venture, LittlePuss Press, which she recently launched with writer Cat Fitzpatrick.
