Biography

She spent part of her childhood in Oxfordshire, England, before her family moved to Manitobaand then settled in Alberta in 1966.

She studied at the University of Manitoba and at a teachers' college inNew Zealand.

Gedge wrote unpublished poetry for years. She tried to write contemporary mainstream fiction in the early 1970s and then gave up, turning to ancient Egypt for inspiration. She based her first published novel, Child of the Morning, on the historical figure of Hatshepsut, Egypt's only female pharaoh. She wrote the novel in six weeks and went on to win the Alberta Search-for-a-New Novelist Competition in 1977.

The Eagle and the Raven received the Jean Boujassy award from the Societe des Gens de Literature in France and The Twelfth Transforming won the Writers Guild of Alberta Best Novel of the Year Award.

She has also written in other genres. Stargate is science fiction, The Covenant is contemporary horror fiction, and Scroll of Saqqara incorporates some fantasy elements.

Gedge's ex-husband, Bernie Ramanauskas, provided the historical research for many of her novels. Gedge lives in Edgerton, Alberta and has two sons, Simon and Roger.
