Maia Caron


Before becoming a writer, Maia Caron was a registered massage therapist and studied Buddhism, Taoism and spiritual healing. In her twenties, she discovered she is Red River Métis and her ancestors fought at the Battle of Seven Oaks in 1816 and served in Louis Riel’s councils. Song of Batoche is her first novel which affectionately explores the relations of Louis Riel, Gabriel Dumont and the Métis.
