Colleen Gareau


Colleen Gareau is the author of "My Mother's Summer Vacations" and "Sam(uel)." She was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and has lived in Quebec and Nova Scotia. She has worked in public relations for 20 years both as a consultant and in government, and taught PR for two years at a private college. She is grateful to the Halifax Monday Morning writing group for their encouragement and sound advice, and to Rebecca who has been a supportive (and perhaps, long-suffering) first-reader. Colleen enjoys literary fiction, especially CanLit and the work of Southern authors. She periodically needs a nature-fix to keep her sane.

Great review for Sam(uel) from Kirkus Reviews!

"Gareau’s intriguing novel explores some timely, substantial themes, including how the world views and treats transgender people, and also how transgender people view and treat themselves. Along the way, it engagingly addresses a range of other issues, including addiction and homelessness. The author also does a particularly good job of illuminating the effects that abuse can have on relationships, both familial and romantic.
"A compelling story about self-acceptance, new beginnings and unconditional love."

First reader review for Sam(uel) at Amazon.com:

I could not put it down. The character development is so well done you feel like Lizzie is a close friend, and you come to love Sam as well. I cheered for their successes and cried with them at their setbacks.
