Rapid-flowing and detailed, Heather Paul's debut novel follows Serena, a narrator who at the story's start, is back in the town she couldn't wait to leave. Dumped by her boyfriend and living in her parents' basement, she takes a job at her small town's main employer, an institution for people with developmental disabilities. When one of her residents dies in her arms, she flees the trauma, ultimately embarking on a journey that pushes and pulls her between constraint and freedom, despair and hope. Set in small-town Ontario, Australia, northern British Columbia, and Miami, Safety in Bear Country pulls its narrator through a world of inequity and spirituality, of activism and psychedelics as she labours to make sense of her place in the world.

Safety in Bear Country is Heather Paul's first novel. She has a Master of Arts in Literature from Memorial University St. John's NL. Heather has worked as a canoe and kayak trip leader, a yoga instructor, a high school art teacher, at a men's prison, group homes, and at a women's shelter. Her short fiction has appeared in numerous publications, including The Antigonish Review, Prairie Fire, The Nashwaak Review, and The Newfoundland Quarterly. She lives in Peterborough, Ontario.
