I’m a fiction writer and photography junkie. I was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, only to be bundled up and moved to a town in North Dakota that had a population of 250 give or take. I started reading fairy tales and mythology books from my dad’s library as soon as I learned to read. We moved every few years for my dad’s job as a pastor––new church and a new home. Books were my escape. They were my friends. I started writing different versions of my favorite stories. Soon, I made up my own worlds. I read sci-fi. I wrote a series of stories about life on a purple planet. I read fantasy and wrote of a young girl who found magic books in her fathers library.
I live in Phoenix, Arizona, where I still study my craft and love that I don’t have to shovel snow to make a path to my car 8 months of the year. I miss Canadian beer and Tim Horton’s coffee. If I were forced to run for border, I would head North with my four cameras, a handful of books, two boxes of unfinished manuscripts, my husband, my son and my dog with the Dr. Seuss tail. It just wouldn’t be an adventure without them.
