Watch the book trailer for Decade of Fear.

Michelle Shephard stood among the crumbling remains of New York City’s World Trade Center on 9/11 and asked, ‘How did this happen?’ So began her 10-year journalistic journey as the Toronto Star’s National Security reporter, looking for answers in the streets of Mogadishu and Sana’a, the mountains of Waziristan, refugee camps in Dadaab and Peshawar, the corridors of power in Washington and Ottawa, and 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. She has travelled to Cuba and the world’s most famous jail in Guantanamo Bay two dozen times.

Shephard has won the National Newspaper Award for investigations and was part of a team awarded the Governor General’s Michener Award for Public Service Journalism. When not travelling, Shephard enjoys life in a century-old home in downtown Toronto with her photojournalist husband Jim Rankin and their two cats Bernstein (Bernie) and Deep Throat (DeeTee, adopted following Woodward’s passing). She finds peace camping in the wilds of Algonquin Park and on the beaches of Costa Rica.

Her first book, Guantanamo’s Child: The Untold Story of Omar Khadr, was published in March 2008 to wide acclaim and voted by Embassy Magazine as one of the 20 most influential books of the year.
