There is no such thing as an uninteresting life, is Sandra Martin's motto.  As a feature writer, she has recently written profiles of  politicians, Bob Rae, Deb Matthews and Alison Redford, as well as the obituaries of  hundreds of significant Canadians - Pierre Berton, Jackie Burroughs, Ed Mirvish, June Callwood, Arthur Erickson, and Ken Thomson to name only a handful. Her book, Working the Dead Beat: 50 lives that changed Canada, was published  to glowing reviews in October, 2012.  Before taking on the dead beat in 2004, she was an arts and culture writer, specializing in books for The Globe.
