Jan Conn has written eight books of poetry, most recently Edge Effects, Brick Books, 2012. These are poems that map the world in fragments, encountering ghosts, hookers and lost-and-found selves.

Botero's Beautiful Horses (Brick Books, 2009) includes many lyrical poems written in Latin America, and one set on Mars. Jaguar Rain (Brick Books, 2006) focuses on the outstanding Amazonian botanical illustrator, naturalist and explorer Margaret Mee.  Vehicule Press published Beauties on Mad River: Selected and New Poems, in 2000.  Her book South of the Tudo Bem Cafe (Vehicule Press, 1990) was shortlisted for the Pat Lowther Award.

 

Born in southeastern Quebec, she received her Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of Toronto in 1987. She studies the evolution and ecology of mosquitoes that transmit pathogens at the Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health, in Albany, New York.
