Chris Masterman was the Librarian at the Record for twelve years. She wrote “Flash from the Past” from September 2006 until she left the Record in May 2008. She lives in Stratford, Ontario, where she works sporadically on a short story collection and tries very hard to hide her inexplicable fear of swans. Someday she hopes to live in a place with “by-the-sea” at the end of its name.
