Mix Hart’s pursuits lie at the intersection of storytelling and fine art. Queen of the Godforsaken is Mix Hart’s debut novel, published in 2015 by Thistledown Press. Mix received an artist grant from the Canada Council of the Arts to assist with the completion of her upcoming, literary fiction novel, Naked Under the Midnight Sun. In addition, Mix writes the Peter-Not Pizzaface junior fiction series and is an award-winning blogger. She taught academic writing at Okanagan College and is also a traditional (and digital) oil painter. Mix is currently completing a PhD at the University of British Columbia in digital arts and humanities. Mix has lived all across Canada from the Pacific to the Atlantic Coasts including the Yukon as well as in London, UK and Brisbane, Australia. She is currently based in Kelowna, British Columbia, where she lives with her husband, their three daughters, and two dogs. When Mix has free time, she spends it outside in nature, navigating rivers and oceans on her paddleboard. If forced indoors, you’ll find her dancing to Latin music.
