I live in Canada’s capital city with my partner, daughters, and cat.

I write picture books with humor and heart that entertain children as well as the adults who read with them. My higher education in science inspires me to include an educational element in many projects–snuck in, of course, so children won’t suspect they’re learning while having so much fun. 

I enjoy doing almost anything if it is outdoors, especially swimming, canoeing, and battling the weeds in my vegetable garden.

My personal essays have been published in magazines and a national Canadian newspaper and I am a member of SCBWI and the 12 x 12 Picture Book Challenge.
