An award-winning journalist and author, Liane Faulder is the Edmonton Journal’s food columnist and food blogger. Winner of the Best Regional Blog in Canada award in 2010, Liane tweets under the Twitter handle Eat My Words Blog. She’s been a regular voice over the years on CBC radio in Edmonton, most recently as food columnist for the afternoon show.
But her journalistic experience extends outside the realm of food; Liane’s articles about everything from the war in Afghanistan to creating healthy step-families have been published in magazines including Reader’s Digest, Today’s Parent and Chatelaine.
A journalism graduate of Ryerson University in Toronto, Liane is also a journalism fellow at Massey College at the University of Toronto, where she was awarded the prestigious St. Clair Balfour fellowship in 2007/2008.
Liane’s book, The Long Walk Home: Paul Franklin’s Journey from Afghanistan, was published by Brindle and Glass, and chronicles the recovery of a Canadian soldier who lost both legs in Afghanistan. Liane’s play of the same name, inspired by Paul Franklin’s story, won the 2015 Discovery prize given by the Alberta Playwrights’ Network. Her personal essay, About the Boys, was published in the best-selling Canadian anthology, Dropped Threads 3.
Liane loves yoga and gin, and finds they complement each other more than you might think. She is the mother of two, twenty-something boys lured home from time-to-time with the promise of meals and mending.
