About the Author
Nancy Taber is a former Canadian military officer. Part of her job once included leaping out of a helicopter into the ocean. Now, most of her job includes sitting at a computer, drinking massive amounts of coffee, and dropping her characters into wild and sometimes weird circumstances. Currently a professor at Brock University, Nancy has published research on the intersection of gender, war, and militarism in academic books and journals. Her short stories have appeared in journals such as The South Shore Review and Atlantis: Critical Studies in Gender, Culture and Social Justice, among others. A Sea of Spectres is her debut novel.

"In A Sea Of Spectres, a mystical talent that's passed down through the women of the Doiron family is also one that might kill. Nancy Taber deftly weaves together multiple timelines, the history of the Acadian Expulsion, and Maritime life for a gripping story that's ultimately a tale of family, trust, and identity."

--Janie Chang, bestselling author of The Library of Legends, The Phoenix Crown

"Prepare to be captivated by Taber's tale, which expertly weaves folklore with feminism and heroics with heart. A Sea of Spectres will keep readers on the edge of their seats with a sweeping epic of masterful storytelling that expertly combines research, Acadian history, and stunning use of craft. Above all, it's the characters that will stay lodged within the reader, echoing power through all the generations captured in this beautiful debut, in which women triumph beyond all boundaries."

--Kelly S. Thompson, national bestselling author of Girls Need Not Apply and Still I Cannot Save You.
