Don Bassingthwaite was born in Meaford, Ontario, and now lives and works in Toronto. Degrees in anthropology and museum studies didn't prepare him for a career in publishing, but he has decided they are an excellent background for writing speculative fiction. Bassingthwaite is a contributor to the award-winning Bending the Landscape anthologies and the author of the dark fantasy novels Such Pain, Breathe Deeply, and Pomegranates Full and Fine. He shares a home with his partner, two cats, a wide assortment of books and games, and a ridiculously well-stocked spice cupboard.
