Warren Goulding – Profile
For more than four decades Warren Goulding has worked as a journalist and newspaper publisher, beginning in Toronto, Saskatchewan for 30 years and now on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. In the mid-1990s he was the court and police reporter for the StarPhoenix.

He has also written for the Hong Kong Sunday Morning Post and several business magazines in Canada. He spend 20 years with Eagle Feather News, a Saskatoon-based Aboriginal publication that circulates throughout Saskatchewan.
In 1999 he began work on Just Another Indian: A Serial Killer and Canada’s Indifference. This book was published by Fifth House/Fitzhenry & Whiteside in April 2001. It quickly became a Saskatchewan bestseller and has reached an audience from coast to coast.
Just Another Indian is Warren Goulding’s attempt to more fairly portray the victims of a serial killer for what they were: daughters, mothers and sisters with families who loved them and not merely women who were consider by some people as disposable due to their vulnerability as a result of race or social status. The book also exposes the media and police indifference to these victims and their families.
Just Another Indian: A Serial Killer and Canada’s Indifference won a 2001 Saskatchewan Book Award in the Non-Fiction category. In 2003 Warren Goulding was honoured with the Social Justice Award from the Alberta-based Institute for the Advancement of Aboriginal Women.
Now semi-retired but actively writing and continuing his interest in issues affecting Indigenous people, Goulding plans to release a children’s book in 2021 with a novel also scheduled for publication by his Chemainus-based company, Askew Creek Publishing.
