I write fiction and non-fiction books for young readers. My debut picture book—a sweet, funny story about a little girl rescuing a houseplant—publishes in 2022. 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.
My children's books are represented by Natalie Lakosil at the Irene Goodman Literary Agency.
Stay tuned for more news!
Thanks for visiting!
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 was recently 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.
