I live in Canada’s capital city with my husband, two daughters and kitten. By day, I work in the food safety field; by night, I craft stories for children.

I have been published in the non-fiction genre in magazines and newspapers, but once I started writing for children, I realized I had been missing all of the fun!  I write picture books for children ages 3 to 8 years that have an emotional core and are often a little bit (or a lot) silly.

Most of my pleasures are simple, such as spending time outside with my family and puttering in my gardens. On the more complicated side, I once parachuted out of an airplane. I will not do that again.

I am a member of SCBWI, the 12 x 12 Picture Book Challenge and ‘friend’ of Canscaip.
