About me

Occupation Writer
Introduction I think I have loved books forever. My best friends are books; the characters, the worlds, the challenges they contain. When I was growing up, a Saturday wasn’t complete without a trip on the bus to the local library. I would sit in the back of the bus on the way home, where there was lots of room to spread my booty, and savour the potential that seemed to literally hum between the covers. It wasn’t until after I had been working as a broadcast journalist with CBC radio for ten years, that I discovered that there is only one thing more fulfilling than reading a great novel; trying to write one. In 1997, I was awarded a Canada Council Grant to complete a collection of short stories entitled Roads Unravelling (Sumach Press), and in 1998 was awarded a New Brunswick Creation Grant to complete the novel Let the Shadows Fall Behind You (Kunati).
