Craft: Writer, Memoirist, Commercial Writer
Bio: Stephanie Regan spent her formative years in a small town in the Ottawa Valley in the 1980s, an experience that informs much of her writing today.
She attended Carleton University with the intention of becoming a journalist. She discovered she didn’t like asking the tough questions, as she felt many of the tough questions were none of her business.
Stephanie worked as a government communications officer for a number of years but found she had no energy left for creative writing. She left the federal government in 2013 when her office was closed. She is now working as a freelance writer with absolutely no guarantees in life but is exponentially happier.
Her first attempt at a novel won an Ontario Arts Council Grant and a Writer’s Trust Scholarship.
Stephanie is skilled at technical writing, communications writing, editing for style, creative non-fiction, non-fiction, and realistic, everyday life fiction about quirky, odd people and their weird lives.
She is currently working on her second novel, one that she is confident will see the light of day. It is set in a small town.
