SHAENA LAMBERT is the author of four works of fiction: Petra; Oh, My Darling; Radiance; and The Falling Woman. Her work has been nominated for the Writers' Trust Fiction Prize, the Ethel Wilson Award, the Evergreen Award, and the Frank O'Connor Award for the Short Story. Her  recent novel, Petra, was inspired by German activist Petra Kelly, who transformed environmental politics only to find herself caught in a triangle of love, jealousy and murder. The Boston Review wrote: “As a work of historical fiction, Petra brings Kelly to the fore in a way that no biography or work of scholarship yet has.” Petra won the 2021 Ethel Wilson Award for best work of fiction in BC and the Yukon, and was a CBC best book of the year.
