COWDY HOUSE, an imprint of Upstart Press in Kingston, Ontario, works for local authors first, enriching the local arts community. Our books are distributed through local bookstores and writers festivals and can be found in libraries and on bookshelves across Canada. Cowdy House's lead titles for 2015-16 include three standouts: Alena Schram's Ephronesque essay collection, The Opinionated Old Cow; John Boxtel's STUDIO, a full-colour reprise of 60 years (and counting) of the sculptor's work; and Maureen Garvie's literary mystery Withdrawn from Circulation.
Cowdy House's editor and production manager, Christina Decarie, teaches communications at St. Lawrence College in Kingston. Her fiction and writing have appeared in Business Communication Quarterly, Quill & Quire, Profile Kingston, Pottersfield Portfolio, Antigonish Review, All Rights Reserved, and other publications, plus the anthologies Writing on the Edge and Lake Effect.
