I grew up in the Ottawa-Gatineau region in Canada but am currently living in Edmonton, Alberta with my husband, toddler, and pets.
I have History degrees from McGill and the University of British Columbia. I’m on the Board of Directors (and immediate Past-President) of the Canadian Aviation Historical Society and a member of the Writers’ Union of Canada, the Writers Guild of Alberta and the Creative Nonfiction Collective among other organizations.
When I’m not researching and writing, I enjoy travelling, hiking, yoga, and watching t.v. crime dramas.
