Wade Kearley

Having grown up on the banks of Manuels River in Conception Bay, Wade Kearley moved to British Columbia in 1980 to study fine arts and journalism at the University of Victoria. He graduated with honours in 1983 and moved back to Newfoundland and Labrador. During his thirty years as a commercial writer, editor, author, and journalist, Wade Kearley has written extensively about the oceans, publishing articles in national and international journals and magazines. He has six books to his credit, including three other works of non-fiction: the provincial bestseller The People’s Road: On the Trail of the Newfoundland Railway, the updated The People’s Road Revisited, and the recently acclaimed book Here’s the Catch: The Fish We Harvest from the Northwest Atlantic. In Sentinels of the Strait, which featured sketches of legendary lighthouses of Belle Isle, Wade’s text accompanies the artwork of Leslie H. Noseworthy. Wade has also published two books of poetry: Drawing On Water and Let Me Burn Like This: Prayers from the Ashes.
