A dual citizen of Canada and the US, I’ve been making stuff up since the first grade. I’m a huge fan of tennis, chocolate and kick-ass boots. I live in Edmonton, Alberta. The wall in front of my desk is a 5’ x 11’ white board where I keep track of ideas, reminders, and inspiration. My characters are very demanding and rarely let me take a day off, and I don’t mind. I'm tickled to be represented by The Cooke Agency.
