‘Bone Cage’ is the latest offering from writer Catherine Banks. Her interest in writing began early. Her love of drama and her understanding of its power are a combination of time spent in her grandmother’s kitchen, listening to her stories and ravings of real life dramas. In this episode of Sound Bites you can find out more about this Nova Scotian writer as she chats to Glenna Brown.
