Debra Martens recently completed her collection of linked short stories, In Her Element. Some of its stories were published in The New Quarterly, Room magazine and Grain magazine, among others.

Her next book draws on her years abroad (she has moved around a lot, in an international version of Stompin’ Tom’s “I’ve been everywhere”), having lived in Nairobi, New Delhi, Vienna, London, and East Jerusalem.

She also edits or curates the literary site, Canadian Writers Abroad, which promotes the work of Canadian authors spending time outside of Canada, through book reviews, interviews, and guest posts. For this she is always seeking new content and contributors.

For what concerns her now, check out her Posts.
