I’m a writer and librarian from Coast Salish territories (west coast Canada), currently working and living in the unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation (Nanaimo). I’m a cis white bisexual woman who has an honours BA in English and German from UVic and an MA in English from Dalhousie. I also have half of a PhD in English (it’s a long story). I got my MLIS at UBC.
I am especially partial to writing which is queer, feminist, and/or Canadian–the writing that this site is all about! Topics and activities dear to my heart include cats, bisexuality, libraries, queer (Canadian) literature, running, and drinking tea.
I have a queer book advice column, Ask Your Friendly Neighbourhood Lesbrarian, which runs on Autostraddle. If you need help finding your next favourite LGBTQ2IA+ books, send me an email (stepaniukcasey [at] gmail.com) or tweet. Then, I’ll write you up a whole post with suggestions! I’ve helped people find lesbian and bisexual dystopian YA, fat-positive queer books, novels with asexual characters, YA about trans characters that doesn’t focus on transition, books that are similar to Mariko Tamaki’s, and lots more!
