About me

Gender Female

Occupation writer, editor, researcher and story producer for film and tv.
Location Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Introduction My memoir, Not Exactly As Planned, is published by Demeter Press and is available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle format. I am a freelance writer and editor, also working in film and television. Since my son’s diagnosis with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), I have become part of an extensive network of professionals, families, organizations and online groups interested in FASD, children with special needs, and adoption. I struggle continually to help my son, now 27, find a place in the world.
Interests My memoir, Not Exactly As Planned, is published by Demeter Press. I am a wife, mother gardener, birdwatcher and baker, walked a Catholic pilgrimage route in Spain, started playing the viola in my 50s, took my family to Guyana on a humanitarian aid project, have ocean kayaked off the coast of British Columbia and have had solo exhibitions of my hand-painted black and white photographs. I was born in Detroit, went to university in Washington, D.C., and now live on Toronto Island with my two children and husband, a filmmaker. I wish I could get more sleep.
