She is a founding member of the 11th Floor Writers and recently completed her Creative Writing Certificate at the University of Toronto. Her story “Eggardon” appeared in A Darker Side of Dorset, published in the UK in 2014, and “The Keys to Happiness” was shortlisted for the Bridport Prize. Formerly a physicist in the nuclear industry, Theo moved to Canada in 1981 and now divides her time between Toronto and southwest England. She is currently working on a novel inspired by her mother’s World War II journal.
