As a recipient of two artist grants from the Canada Council of the Arts, I have been given the wonderful opportunity of time to spend writing and revising my two YA novels. I was also selected as a 2020 Quebec Writers' Federation mentee and a 2021 AICW mentee, learning to structure and revise my works in progress. This year, I am working on my Graduate degree in Creative Writing from Humber College.
I have also had the wonderful opportunity to present at Confabulation storytelling events.
I love the magic of words, and how they've transported me into the lives of my characters. I've been known to get lost in my story, lose track of time, or call my children by my main characters' names, but I've never been more excited about the chance to write.
As a high school English teacher, I am always looking for books with which my students can relate. Visit my blog, where I offer book reviews, creative writing ideas and ways to encourage young readers and authors.
