Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?I
I was born and raised in the city of Winnipeg. I think it was my love of reading that led to me wanting to also write. I also spent a lot of time daydreaming.
When did you first start writing?
When I was about 12, I wrote an obituary for a mouse. My dad found it so hilarious that he took it to work to show his friends. As an adult I started with putting the occasional article in the Parrot Post, My first book, Take Her and Run wasn't written until my own children were grown.
