I often say I’ve been writing since I could scribble. That was before I knew to wonder what I wanted to be when I grew up, which turned out to be a teacher. I was fortunate to live my dream as a teaching professor. And I may teach again. But until then, I enjoy my writing. I write anything I want. Every day. Pinch me (OK, don’t; that would be weird).

My educational background includes a BA (Psychology & Sociology) and a JD (Law) from UVic. I have worked in the private and public sectors in sales & marketing, real estate, law and post-secondary education. Writing has featured significantly in just about every position and in every organization for which I have worked.

I am grateful to live and play on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish Nations. While I’ve lived and travelled elsewhere, I was born on the West Coast and am most at home enjoying the lifestyle our stunning Vancouver Island offers. I’m an avid hiker, kayaker, paddle-boarder, baker, sewer & knitter. And I’m grateful for a wonderful community of family and friends near and far.
