Thanks so much for sharing your book with me and I wish you and your company all the best luck in spreading words and stories that mend the world. What else do we have?”

Who We Are
From Whence We Came
Pink Gazelle Productions Inc. was started by Maryanne Pope in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in February 2002.
Once upon a time there was a young woman who was married to a police officer. And they were very much in love. Every day, he told her that if she wanted to fulfill her dream of becoming a writer, she would have to work at it. But she thought she had all the time in the world. Then, one day, he went to work – at his dream job – and died in the line of duty. Because of that, she was devastated and thought her heart would break open from the sorrow. Until finally, one day she began to pick up the pieces of her heart and make a new life. That was the day she began to write.

A Widow’s Awakening creative non-fiction book by Maryanne Pope
“I have just finished reading A Widow’s Awakening. Like others, I picked it up, became very absorbed and read it non-stop, every chance I got. It is perfect. The storyteller is wonderfully unpredictable and eccentric. I love her. Thank you for doing it and for doing it so well.”
– Linda M, Alberta
