Meet Mo

Mo Duffy Cobb is a Sagittarius and a ferocious writer. She is a teacher and etherealist, although she’s not sure if that’s officially a word. She thinks it should be. Her motto is, “Be a Wave.”

Mo keeps up the imaginative side of daily life with her eight year old daughter, Leila. She teaches Brownies and carts Leila around to gymnastics and skating, practicing mediative mothering and waking often in the middle of the night to scribble down her magical musings. In 2012, Mo gave birth to a baby boy, Ari, and is happy to announce that having a son has been one of the greatest joys of her life to date.

She plans to write love letters to the great red woods of Vancouver island, to her dozens of favourite authors, and to her darling husband, thanking him for living with her and loving it through her mazes of journals, words, and broken crayons.

When she’s not writing, she maintains an academic life teaching English to international students. She likes the vivacity and engagement of youth, and especially being a part of their journey in Canada.  At present, she is mid Masters in Fine Arts, at Vermont College of the Art’s prestigious Creative Non Fiction program.

Mo has one full length manuscript, White Butterfly: A Memoir of Motherhood and Loss ready and is now working on her second book, Unpacked. She currently wonders occasionally about joining the ranks of published authors. She hopes there will be tea and crumpets when she arrives, but isn’t holding her breath. Read more in About the Memoir.

She lives in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, in Canada’s smallest, most beautiful province. She loves homemade pumpkin soap and acoustic guitars, frequents the Farmer’s Market, and waits all year for our island’s short, but glorious, strawberry season.

To reach Mo, please feel free to email moduffycobb@gmail.com, or follow me on Twitter.

  7. Hi Maureen,

    My daughter, Megan, was a student and big fan of yours at Queen Charlotte. I am working on a new social media/webs series project that might be of interest to you. Please contact me by email and I will send you details. I would love to discuss it with you further.

  8. je suis trop fière de toi et de ce que tu deviens….
    j’adorerais lire tes livres mais en français ça serait mieux ! ;-)
    dommage que nous soyons si loin et que la langue ne soit la même , mais je pense qu’on pourrais discuter des heures de la vie toutes les deux!! c’est marrant de voir que même enfant, les choix d’amitié ne sont pas innocents, sans le savoir, nous avions les même choses dans la tête, sauf qu’à 10 ans , on ne parle pas encore de ça!!
    longue vie à toi
