Ann Allchin is a Canadian writer informed by her experience in the business and science worlds yet, inspired by curiosity and creativity. With a double-major in Neuroscience and English from the University of Toronto, Ann began her career as a technical writer and project manager in the telecommunications industry. Later, she returned to her science roots as a medical writer and copy editor in pharmaceutical research. However, much like a superhero with a day job and alter-ego, in her spare time, Ann is a creative writer and storyteller. She is especially drawn to revisiting biographical histories and investigating miscarriages of social justice.
In addition to writing, Ann is an experimental baker and cook. She was the culinary explorer behind the food blog cookingdangerously.com, where strange or “dangerous” ingredients were showcased in creative recipes (note: scorpions are more of a garnish than a main). There is always something mysterious and delicious emerging from Ann’s oven. Notwithstanding the curious and unexpected nature of her literary focus, Ann mostly leads a Diana Prince life in Toronto with her husband, daughter, son, and whippet.
Ann has joined Highness Global to advance her research, gastronomic, and writing projects, currently focused on cannabis and The War on Drugs. She believes that cannabis is healthy and knows first-hand that it can assist with serious health issues to improve quality of life. More importantly, Ann advocates for the rights of adults to experiment and indulge responsibly, medicinally and recreationally, and is interested in exposing the truth about the history of over-reactive, often racially or politically motivated drug penalties.
As a literary agent, Highness Global has secured a book deal for Ann’s Edibles Cookie Cookbook – Butter and Flower that is to be published in Fall 2022. Stoned, a luxury coffee table cookbook will also be published in 2022 with Ann for Highness Global. Please contact us for pre-orders.
Robert Cameron is a designer who has a portfolio of exquisitely designed wine cellars in the most prestigious homes in Canada. Cameron’s bespoke designs are carefully created to ensure optimal functionality with stunning aesthetics. His cellar designs not only preserve and store collections, but they also showcase and celebrate them. Cameron’s cellars have been featured in various publications including House & Home, The Globe & Mail, The National Post, Toronto Life and Wine Spectator Magazine.
Cameron is also an artist who incorporates wine into postmodern sculpture. As both a sommelier and an artist, Cameron’s work challenges and investigates the many aspects of wine: colours, varietals, prices, cultural history, sensuality, critical evaluations, and hierarchies of value. He has been heavily inspired by his experiences while travelling to over twenty-five wine-producing countries.
Cameron is a certified Sommelier with the International Sommelier Guild. He graduated from the University of Victoria in British Columbia and obtained his Masters while studying in Bordeaux, France.
