Catherine Kenwell is a Barrie, Ontario author and mediator. After 30 years in not-for-profit communications, she sustained a life-changing brain injury and while recovering she was restructured out of her job. At that point, she did what every 50-year-old brain-injured menopausal woman should attempt: she joined the circus and learned to perform on trapeze and aerial hoop.

Catherine is published in both horror and creative non-fiction genres, and writes extensively about mental health, brain injury and invisible disabilities. She serves as chair of the City of Barrie’s Accessibility Advisory Committee, which champions issues related to providing an accessible community to all residents.

Catherine has been published in the following Black Hare Press anthologies:

Love – No More Flowers; Cuddle Me Warm

Hate – Liar; Have Some Cake

Oceans – D’Eye; Evolution; Unmoored, Nevermore

Twenty Twenty – The Cost of Diamonds

Pride – Trip to Comeuppance

Lust – Aramis and Shelby

Sloth – Day 97

School’s In – Monster

In addition to Black Hare Press, Catherine co-authored the bestseller NOT CANCELLED: Canadian Kindness in the Face of COVID-19, is a contributing writer to Chicken Soup for the Soul, and has been published in horror anthologies including Books of Horror, The Toilet Zone, and Siren’s Call.
