KATHERINE LAZARUK is a poet and author of the collection Love is Not Pie: Variations on a Monogamish Theme. After feeling stuck with her art, she realized that she was being held back by unexplored emotions from her family of origin. She chose to excise those painful feelings through poetry and found a way to move on. Lazaruk is a huge fan of opera, jazz, and of course poetry—reading the work of others as well as creating her own.
Lazaruk lives and creates in Vancouver with her dear husband, David, and a plethora of chosen family and good friends.
