I live in Canada’s capital city with my husband and two daughters. 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.
