Amanda Peters

Amanda Peters is a Canadian writer from Falmouth, Nova Scotia, whose debut novel ''The Berry Pickers'' was a shortlisted finalist for the 2023 Atwood Gibson Writers' Trust Fiction Prize, and the winner of the 2024 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.

Of mixed European and Mi'kmaq heritage, Peters was born and raised in the Annapolis Valley region of Nova Scotia as a member of the Glooscap First Nation. She was nominated for an Indigenous Voices Award in the Unpublished English Prose category in 2019 for her short story "Pejipug (Winter Arrives)", and won in the same category in 2021 for "Waiting for the Long Night Moon".

''The Berry Pickers'' centres on a young indigenous girl who goes missing, depicting the event's lifelong effects on both her birth family and the girl herself, who grows up as the adopted child of a white family with no knowledge of her origins. The novel was published in early 2023 by Harper Perennial.

Her debut short story collection, ''Waiting for the Long Night Moon'', is forthcoming. Provided by Wikipedia
