About the Author

Trina Moyles is a freelance writer, journalist, photographer, human rights activist, and community organizer. Her works of fiction and poetry have been published in many literary journals, and her journalism in many magazines and websites. Over the past ten years, Moyles has worked intimately with rural organizations and communities in Nicaragua, Guatemala, Cuba, Canada, and East Africa. She focuses her research and writing on social and environmental justice, food security, nutrition, and gender equality. She lives in Peace River, Alberta. As a photojournalist and writer, KJ Dakin aims to complement the power of images with the context of words. Look for her hitchhiking on the asphalt of Eastern Europe, treeplanting across British Columbia's rugged crags, or sipping whiskey in smoky watering holes from Nicaragua to Bosnia and South Africa.
