I never knew Candis Graham. She died in Victoria, BC, in 2005, two years before I moved there. In 1994, when she was still living in Ottawa, she told an interviewer, “I write for lesbians.” She wrote for me, but I didn’t know that, either—not until 2012 when I was chosen to receive the Candis Graham Writing Scholarship sponsored by the Lambda Foundation Fund, a nonprofit organization supporting studies by students across Canada in gay and lesbian issues. As a recipient, I was invited to tea at the Faculty Lounge on the University of Victoria campus to meet Pat McKenna, Graham’s partner, who had set up the scholarship after Graham’s unexpected death of an aneurysm at age 56. McKenna, an arresting woman with long, unruly white hair, gave me a copy of Graham’s second book of short stories, Imperfect Moments, published in 1993, which had been nominated for the American Library Association Gay and Lesbian Book Award. Later, when I opened it, pressed flowers fell from the book, a silent gift from a benevolent spirit. McKenna laughed when I told her and assured me Graham had put them there.
