Kevin A. Couture grew up in a BC mining town and has spent the last decade waking before dawn to write. The stories in his debut collection, Lost Animal Club, have all appeared in Canadian or American journals. In recent years, he has been nominated for the Writers’ Trust of Canada/McClelland & Stewart Journey Prize, and was included in the anthology Coming Attractions. He lives on Vancouver Island with his wife, two children, and their Brittany spaniel, who spectacularly defies animal training. Lost Animal Club was released September 2016.
