CHILDREN'S WRITING

My debut picture book, LET THE BABY PUSH THE BUTTONS! will publish in 2021, with Ripple Grove Press.  This funny and suspenseful story follows  two headstrong, button-pushing toddlers who meet one day at a crosswalk in the middle of town. One  crosswalk button, two  button-obsessed babies...

 I'm an  active member of 12x12PB and SCBWI. One of my manuscripts was a finalist in CANSCAIP's National Writing for Children competition. 

 

ABOUT ME

I'm a poet and children's author.  My debut picture book LET THE BABY PUSH THE BUTTONS! will publish in 2021. Formerly a broadcast journalist with NPR and CBC, I now interview health science researchers and write about their discoveries. I volunteer as a kid's literacy mentor with The Writer's Exchange and I moderate author panels with the Vancouver Writer's Festival. I'm blessed to live between ocean and mountains on Canada's West Coast, with good, funny people and a very cute dog. 

Thanks for visiting!
