I write contemporary action-adventure middle grade and adult fiction with a dystopic edge. Somewhere along the line I seem to have acquired a PhD in Geography and have spent many years researching climate change, global food security and alternative energy. Sometimes this comes into my writing. Sometimes it doesn't. I write about things that matter to me, but in the end it's all about the story.
I also live in a beautiful snowy ski town in BC, join too many book clubs, ski whenever possible, run, and hang with my kids. Given my background as an environmental researcher, much of my writing has an environmental theme.
I have been known to read tarot cards and spring surprise walks on unsuspecting neighbourhood dogs. I've wanted to be a writer since I first read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and did not want to come out of the wardrobe.
I learn best by organizing and writing out what I have found, so I share it here to help other learning writers, and also to remind me what I have already researched and attempted to understand as I have a frightful habit of forgetting!
