Felicia is from a strong family of storytellers. She grew up surrounded by birch trees, mayflowers, and stories from ‘Nnu’egati from her mother Phyllis Grant, the director and animator, and her grandfather, the late Elder and storyteller Gilbert Sewell.

Felicia has an undergraduate degree in History from Mount Allison University. She is a writer and artist who prefers to write historical fiction and is in the process of completing her first novel. Felicia is passionate about her culture and expresses it through artwork and by cultivating medicines.
