I'm represented by Natalie Lakosil at Bradford Literary.
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'm now a freelance writer and editor, often working in the health sciences field. I'm also a literacy mentor with The Writer's Exchange and a moderator for author events at the Vancouver Writer's Festival. I'm grateful to live in beautiful BC, between ocean and mountains, with good, funny people and a very cute dog.
