After a very full life in the U.K., -- with experiences ranging from running a business to single-motherhood -- Mary left her home in England and relocated to the Maritimes almost a decade ago. Since then, she's continued to delve into her own writing, and helping other people with theirs. She recently published her first book " A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Inventing My Childhood "- to very positive reviews.

But by night, Janelle is a musician --- influenced in part by the place she was born and bred ---and in part by a place very far from here. A couple of years ago, Janelle went to Rwanda with A Partnership in Caring - an Antigonish group which gives support to hospitals in Butare. And that trip changed her life, and her music. She recently put out a CD inspired by Rwanda. She's also recorded music there with Rwandan musicians.
