Bill Redekop comes by his love of traveling across Manitoba naturally. In summer, his parents used to whisk the family back and forth between a cottage in Eastern Manitoba and a hobby farm and apiary in the Interlake near Steeprock, stopping only briefly in Winnipeg.

He is a graduate of Miles Macdonnell Collegiate and Red River Community College, with two years of English literature courses at University of Winnipeg. He reported on agriculture for the Manitoba Co-operator from 1979-88 before joining the Free Press.

With the Free Press, Bill won a Manitoba Human Rights Commission Journalism Award (1994), a Canadian Mining Institute News Award (1998), and co-won a National Newspaper Award for coverage of Manitoba’s 1997 Flood of the Century.

He has co-written two Free Press books, A Red Sea Rising and The Way We Live. On his own, he has written two true crime books, Crimes of the Century, which garnered the Mary Scorer Book Award in 2003, and Crime Stories (More of Manitoba’s Most Notorious True Crimes).

Bill is an avid canoeist. He lives in Winnipeg with his wife Mary and son Ethan.
