What are you working on next?
I always said I'd never write a sequel because I have too many ideas! However, my readers liked "Poppy" quite a bit and kept asking if I'd ever consider writing more about her. When I asked Poppy how she felt about that, she told me she definitely had another story to tell. And so "Evergreen" was born.

When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first short story in grade six. I was asked by the teacher to read it aloud to the class, which terrified me. After I was finished, I realized that I actually had everyone’s attention! I was shy and we moved every year, so I was always the new kid. When you’re in that situation, it’s kind of like being invisible. Finding my voice through story-telling made me realize how powerful writing could be.
