I was born and raised in a rural village in New Brunswick, Canada, where I lived with my mother and sister in an old farmhouse with a pack of cats and acres of land for roaming. I later moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to attend art college and met my husband. We now live in Ottawa, Ontario, with frequent trips home to the Maritimes.
I first fell in love with words as a songwriter. I grew up playing guitar and later studied piano, which became the backdrop for my writing. I also used to write short stories and remember having a deep conversation with my grade four English teacher about the rules of grammar at the time and how I absolutely had to break them because I needed to start my sentence with the word "and."
I love to write stories about strong female characters in memorable settings along the East Coast of Canada. My first book, STUCK, is a coming-of-age story about a young Acadian woman growing up in a small fishing village in New Brunswick. My second book, LETTERS FROM LABRADOR, tells the story of young British nurses working in the beautiful, yet unpredictable, northern coast of Labrador, Newfoundland.
