Meet the members of the Crabapple Mews Collective.
Inge Bremer-Trueman was born in Germany and grew up in Edmonton. As a young adult she lived in Fort McMurray and Kenya, and now resides in Calgary with her husband, two grown children and one very precocious granddaughter who ensures her already addled brain is incessantly interrupted with outbursts like “Make me noodles!”
Inge is a member of the Writers’ Guild of Alberta and the Alexandra Writers’ Centre Society. Along with a handful of dedicated wine-swilling local writers, she helps produce Writing in the Works, an annual reading event that showcases authors’ about to be released books, works in progress, or works on the prowl for a publisher.
A Root Beer Season, released in 2013, is her first novel in the Sonja Pfeiffer Series. Its sequel, When the Wheels Fall Off, was released in September 2015 and follows the further misadventures of Sonja as she tackles romance, marriage and drag racing. Winging It, released in March 2017, is the third in the series and follows the feisty protagonist to Fort McMurray where she finds a new kind of adventure in the world of aviation and bush pilots.
Inge fights an on-going battle to clean up her vocabulary which tends to lean, like autumn trees in the wind, towards the wildly colourful.
