CRAMP, Beverly

Author Tags: Non-Fiction

A respected freelance journalist who often writes about architecture and art, Beverly Cramp co-wrote a nifty guide with Samantha Amara, Vancouver Book of Everything (MacIntyre Purcell Publishing $14.95). It's crammed with 'didja know' tidbits and statistics, including the number of traffic lights in the city, average rents and ethnic population figures. She edited a newspaper for the Musqueam Indian Band for three years, and served as Executive Director of the BC Book Prizes in the 1990s. She also ghost writes books and memoirs.

Beverly Cramp's latest book is Pacific National Exhibition: 100 Years of Fun (Echo Genesis 2010), which won a silver prize from the Independent Publisher Book Awards in 2011 in the Canada-West, Best Regional Non-Fiction category.

Born and raised in B.C., she received degrees from Simon Fraser University and the University of Calgary. She lives in Vancouver.
