I’m so glad you dropped by to visit.
Growing up on an acreage in Stoney Creek, Ontario gave me a love of nature and scribbling words.
I’ve always been a writer and lover of books. I wrote for a high school newspaper and jumped into freelance writing and publishing as a parent of young children.
I’ve written articles, cartoons, and columns, and my main loves, poetry and fiction. I’m incredibly pleased with my first picture book, Summer North Coming, Fitzhenry & Whiteside, 2019, and my first published YA novel, Escape from the Wildfire, Lorimer Kids & Teens, 2022.
In the time period BC (before children), I won the WBRL Excuses Excuses contest. Recently, I was a winner of the RMWB Words in Motion poetry contest (2016); and I was short-listed for an Excellence in the Arts Award, Literary Arts category, by Arts Council Wood Buffalo.
I now live in the Foothills county of Alberta in the breezes of the Rocky Mountains with my family and pets.
