From Whence We Came

Pink Gazelle Productions was started by Maryanne Pope in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 2002, two years after the death of her husband, John

What’s Our Story?

Once upon a time there was a young woman who was married to a police officer. They were very much in love. He always 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 and never came home again. Her heart was shattered. Until one day…she began to pick up the pieces. That was the day she began to write.

Calling All Pink Gazelles

Maryanne, we widows couldn’t do without you! And I am kind of embarrassed to tell you this, but before all the stores closed, I found your exact shoes and I ordered them! They are so comfortable… I wanted to be like you with your pink gazelle shoes!
