Jael Ealey Richardson grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, in a predominately white neighbourhood where writing took a backseat to athletics - that is until she stumbled upon a playwriting class at university. With an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Guelph, Richardson's writing continues to reflect the rumblings of her African-American ancestry. She currently lives in Brampton with her husband and son, and teaches literature and communications at Humber College.
