My debut novel is an action-adventure love story that races across the country and back again.

Quill & Quire

An innovative approach to a timeless subject.

Vancouver Sun

A powerful debut, audacious for what it attempts, impressive for how well it succeeds.

The Georgia Straight

Equal parts suspense and adventure.

National Post

A stunning mosaic.

I'm well into revisions on my new novel with a character draft in progress! 


I'm the author of the novel Circle of Stones (Dundurn Press, 2015) and a novel-in-progress. I've performed my work at literary readings and festivals across Canada. My short stories, articles and essays have appeared in The Walrus, Joyland, Quill & Quire, NOW Magazine, Canadian Art, Canada's Walk of Fame Commemorative Magazine and elsewhere. I'm a contributing editor for beloved literary magazine Taddle Creek and I've written for and produced award-winning digital TV and film co-productions and narrative games. I also teach writing classes and workshops and am available for panels and talks. 


I grew up on Vancouver Island and studied journalism and literature in Ottawa. Then I lived in Toronto where I worked, wrote, played bass in fun indie bands and traveled often to Montreal and New York City. After years of exploring I returned home to the west coast at the end of 2018. I now live and write in Vancouver with a view of the mountains.
