The Organizers

Faye Arcand

Faye Arcand learned to write and tell stories at a young age. Coming from a large family it was up to her to make herself heard, and that’s what she did. Everyone loved her stories and Faye always knew she’d be a writer.

After a long career within the criminal justice system and various other fodder filled employment, she started to write in earnest.

She’s completed two full novels that are currently seeking a forever home.

She loves to travel the world to study people, cultures, and places. 

Her favorite things to do are to teach, encourage, and chat about writing. 

Faye lives in the South Okanagan with her family ever-faithful dog, and sassy calico.

Jim Jackson

Jim Jackson is a Calgary Herald bestselling author, reluctant gentleman and dabbler in the dark arts of blues music.

Jim’s mission is to give – in these troubled times – memorable and meaningful stories for modern readers and listeners.

“The Wine Country Writer’s Festival is exactly as glorious as it sounds. Great company, enriching programming and perfectly paired socializing opportunities. I travelled all the way from Alberta for it and will do it again next year.”
