CHILDREN'S WRITING

I write lyrical and humorous picture books (fiction and non-fiction) as well as chapter books and board books.  I'm an active member of 12x12PB, SCBWI, Inked Voices and CWILL.

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...

(Publisher's Weekly announcement below!)

 I'm  represented by Natalie Lakosil at Bradford Literary.

 

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'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.

 

Thanks for visiting!
