And Then She Fell may be Alicia Elliott's fiction debut, but it has readers in its spell. Join Tricia Knowles for a conversation with Alicia about this gothic horror-tinged story of inherited trauma, false allyship, and the secrets that upend a new mother's not-so-perfect life. This is an electric novel critics are calling haunting, surreal, visionary, propulsive, ethereal, and complex.

Alicia Elliot, a brilliant Tuscarora writer representing the Six Nations of the Grand River, has earned widespread acclaim for her work. Her words have graced the pages of renowned publications like The Malahat Review, Room, Grain, CBC, The Globe and Mail, and Maclean's, cementing her position as a formidable voice in the Canadian literary landscape. As a creative nonfiction editor at The Fiddlehead, associate nonfiction editor at Little Fiction | Big Truths, and a consulting editor with The New Quarterly, Elliot's dedication to nurturing the literary community is evident. Her remarkable essay "A Mind Spread Out on the Ground" was even honored with a Gold award at the National Magazine Awards in 2017. In Brantford, Ontario, Alicia Elliot shares her life with her loving husband and child.
