As the author of two memoirs, I have spoken about my unusual life story at a TEDx talk, a high school program for underprivileged students, and a men’s prison, to name a few audiences. I have also taught memoir writing at Vancouver’s Capilano University and, in 2017, served as the writer-in-residence for the Creative Nonfiction MFA course at University of Kings College in Halifax. I live in Vancouver with my husband and three children. When I’m not writing or managing my kids, I love to go to amusement parks, play cards and board games, read books of all kinds, watch movies and hold dinner parties. Feel free to drop me a note if you’d like to say hi!
