Born in Windsor, Ontario, Cherie Geauvreau has lived on Saltspring Island since 1985. She has worked in pharmaceuticals and restaurant management, she has been a fork life operator, a cook, a house cleaner and a nun. Her book of poetry Even the Fawn Has Wings was published by Brick Books in 1994.

"Cherie Geauvreau's work is richly erotic and adventurous. I think she's very much her own woman in writing. I've watched her poetry come out of a somewhat private and hidden place of pain into the very open..." -- Phyllis Webb
