I’m a history-obsessed author living in Houston, Texas, where I spend my days writing, researching, and going on adventures with my family.  I love animals, getting out in nature, and learning new languages and about different cultures.

I’m from Canada and frequently travel back for work and play.  In 2019 that included an amazing trip to Inuvik, Northwest Territories where I explored the Western Arctic by dog sled and Cessna 180 for a work-in-progress!

I’m active in organizations such as the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), the Creative Nonfiction Collective, the Writers Union of Canada, and the Canadian Aviation Historical Society. So far, much of my work has focused on hidden stories about aviation and reconciliation.

To learn more about me and my work, please visit the blog on this site or my LinkedIn profile.

If you’d like to discuss a book project, please contact my literary agent, Meg Wheeler, at Westwood Creative Artists.
