CHILDREN'S BOOKS

 

 I write fiction and non-fiction books for young readers. My debut picture book publishes in 2022. It's a sweet, funny story about a little girl rescuing a houseplant. In 2023, I have a lyrical picture book coming out. And...more projects are in the works! I also write board books, chapter books, and middle grade novels. 

I'm  represented by Natalie Lakosil at Bradford Literary

and I'm an active member of 12x12PB, SCBWI,  and CWILL. 

Stay tuned for details of my soon-to-be-announced books!

Thanks for visiting!

 

ABOUT ME

I'm a poet and a children's author. My first picture book publishes in 2022—with more to follow! My poems are found in multiple literary magazines and anthologies. One of them has been selected for Best Canadian Poetry 2021! Formerly a broadcast journalist and producer with NPR and CBC, I now do freelance communications and editing. 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, Canada, between the Pacific Ocean and the North Shore Mountains, with my funny family, a cute dog and some very demanding hummingbirds.
