Cassie Deveaux Cohoon was born in the Acadian village of Chéticamp on the northern side of Cape Breton Island, in Nova Scotia. Her Acadian heritage goes back to the early days of Grand Pré on her father’s side and Beaubassin (now Amherst), on her mother’s. As many of her generation, she grew up with the idea that she would be ‘leaving home’ to make a life elsewhere. She has lived in New York City and Paris, France, and now makes her home in Montreal. She has worked as a freelance journalist and has written family histories.
