Who is Twyla Campbell, the author of Gail Hall's Memoir?

December 3, 2018

Twyla Campbell is a freelance scribe who has been writing about food, drink and travel for 14 years. Her articles have appeared in local, national and international publications. Twyla’s knowledge and experience has made her a sought after panelist and culinary competition judge, and CBC Edmonton AM’s restaurant reviewer (since 2010). When she’s not writing, she’s exploring——by car, foot or mountain bike. She’s an urban dweller but a farm girl at heart with an unwavering commitment to champion those who produce good, honest, conscientiously raised food.

Twyla’s curiosity and writing served her well as a research writer for a law firm for a decade as she travelled throughout the Canadian Arctic interviewing residential school survivors for a class action law suit, and Inuit elders involved in forced relocations that took place in the 1930s-1950s. She also travelled to communities and into the jungles of Colombia, South America, to document stories of indigenous people in conflict with companies over the use of their land for mining purposes.
