Born in 1958, Shari Graydon moved to Ottawa from B.C. on October 1, 2002. She has frequently returned to B.C. to promote her work that includes a non-fiction book, In Your Face: The Culture of Beauty and You (Annick Press, 2004).

For her collection of stories from remarkable women who revel in the joys of aging, I Feel Great About My Hands (Douglas & McIntyre, 2011), Shari Graydon invited women from across Canada - all over age 50 - to provide an alternative perspective to the notion that ageing is a downhill slide. Her anthology of stories, essays and poems embrace the changes, discoveries and wisdom that come with age. B.C. contributors include Graydon, Frances Bula, Lyn Cockburn, Bonnie Sherr Klein, Ann Cowan, Liz Whynot, Harriett Lemer and Lillian Zimmerman.
