Our Vision

Shoreline began in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec, almost twenty-six years ago. It had a simple but worthy ambition: To make the best books possible for first-time authors of quality work. Today, though it has changed and grown along the way, Shoreline’s ambition remains largely the same.

Judith Isherwood

Owner and senior editor of Shoreline, Judy–as her friends call her–was born and raised beside Chesapeake Bay and now lives in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec, with a view of the Ottawa River. An author herself, Judith has written five books (The Lakeshore Chamber Music Society: The First Twenty Years; A Grassroots Chronicle; Randonnée à pied de/A Historical Walking Tour of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue; Down to Earth; Tickets: A Play in One Act) and co-edited two (Visiting Scholar, Geoffrey B. Isherwood: A Reader for Educational Leaders). Her short stories, articles, reviews, and poetry have appeared in The Gazette, Readers’ Digest, Shore Writers’ Sampler, The Atlantic Advocate, Zymergy, and The McGill Journal of Education.
