I’m Annemarie Plenert. When I was three years old, I announced that I was going to be a writer when I grew up, and here I am. Writing is my engine, the thing I can’t give up, and it’s been that way for thirty years. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba with my family. I love narwhals and knitting and thunderstorms.

I’m working on a novel about a 17-year-old girl who lives in a world where the snow is poison and winter is half the year. She wants to be a search-and-rescue tracker like her father was before his accident, but it feels like no one is on her side. It’s about being in love with a land that can’t love you back, about recovering from trauma, and about making difficult decisions. Also, there are dragons.

I also collaborated on an online fiction project called Widdershire. Go check it out!
