ABOUT ME

I'm a poet and children's author.  My debut picture book LET THE BABY PUSH THE BUTTONS! will publish in 2021. I'm represented by Natalie Lakosil at Bradford Literary. 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 a literacy mentor with The Writer's Exchange and a moderator for author events at 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.
