Naire Holtz

Writing

In 2007, Nairne Holtz released her debut novel, The Skin Beneath, and went on to win the Alice B. Award for Debut Lesbian Fiction, become a finalist for the QWF McAuslan First Book Prize, and have the Globe and Mail call her “a writer to watch.” Since then she has written This One’s Going to Last Forever, a novella with stories, which the Gazette described as “funny, witty, and original.”  Thanks to her skills as a former librarian, a comprehensive annotated bibliography of Canadian lesbian literature exists at www.nairneholtz.com.
