Since childhood, Pearl has loved to read. As an only daughter of a working mother, she spent little time with her rambunctious brothers and much time secluded alone with books. She was nearly thirty before she realized that writing was a possible career choice, and a good fit, as she always expressed herself better on paper. Today, Pearl writes fiction, non-fiction, and oodles of web copy. She mentors writers online, connecting via her website. She was writer-in-residence for the city of Taipei, Taiwan, and currently teaches writing for DeVry University Online. She is working on her third novel.
Pearl Luke is the author of two critically acclaimed novels: Madame Zee (2006) and Burning Ground (2000), both published by HarperCollins Canada. Burning Ground was a Globe and Mail notable book of the year. It won the Commonwealth Prize for Best First Novel in the Canada/Caribbean region and was short-listed for the Chapter/Robertson Davies Prize, the Georges Bugnet award, and the Canadian Booksellers’ Libris award.
In 2006, Madame Zee was a book club pick for Chatelaine, Flare, and CanadianLiving magazines. In 2007, Madame Zee was also long-listed for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
