In September 2014 House of Anansi released Winter's adventure memoir, Boundless: Tracing Land and Dream in a New Northwest Passage. Boundless was shortlisted for the Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Non Fiction prize, and nominated for the Charles Taylor Prize. Rights have been sold to Jonathan Cape in the UK and to publishers in Germany and France. 

In September 2014 Biblioasis issued Winter's new story collection The Freedom in American Songs, edited by John Metcalf. 

Winter's novel Annabel, published June 2010 by House of Anansi Press, became a #1 bestseller in Canada and was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the Governor General's Award for Fiction, the Rogers Writers' Trust Award, and the Orange Prize. It won the 2011 Thomas Head Raddall Award for Atlantic Fiction.  Annabel was released in 2011 with Jonathan Cape in London and Grove Atlantic/Black Cat in New York. Worldwide translations include Italian, Hebrew, Swedish, French, German, Dutch, and Chinese. 

Winter's story collection, boY(Biblioasis), won the Metcalf-Rooke award and the 2008 Winterset Award.

Her novel Lost in September, inspired by letters General James Wolfe wrote to his mother Henrietta from the time he became a child soldier at 13 until his death at 32 on Quebec's Plains of Abraham, is set for release by Knopf in September 2017.


Kathleen Winter was born in the industrial northeast of England, spent many years in Newfoundland, and now lives in Montreal with her husband and daughters.
