Beth Goobie

Beth Goobie has won six Saskatchewan Book Awards. She also won the 2001 Canadian Library Young Adult Book Award, and has twice been shortlisted for the Governor General's Award for Children's Literature. Her many YA novels focus on issues such as bullying, physical and sexual assault, substance abuse, gangs, first love, sexual orientation and the process of learning the balance between rights and responsibilities as a young person comes into her/his own. Beth is also the author of Jason 's Why, a children's high-interest, low vocabulary novel that deals with a nine-year-old boy's first week in a group home. In addition, she has authored three books that deal with ritual abuse and trauma-based mind control programming, titled breathing at dusk (poetry, winner of two Saskatchewan Book Awards), [i]The Only-Good Heart[/i] (fiction) and [i]Scars of Light[/i] (poetry, winner of the 1995 Pat Lowther Award), as well as several articles online.
