Born and brought up in Placentia, Newfoundland, Walsh studied folklore in Georgia (USA), before returning home and taking to writing plays, poetry and fiction founded in her love of her ancestral place. She divides her time between St. John’s and Patrick’s Cove around the Cape Shore from Placentia. In 2006 she was named the inaugural St. John’s Poet Laureate.
