ABOUT ME

I'm a poet and a children's author of fiction and non-fiction, with picture books publishing in 2022 and 2023. Formerly a broadcast journalist and producer with NPR and CBC, I now do freelance communications and editing work. I'm 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, our cute dog and some very demanding hummingbirds.
