A Little Bit About Me

I am a writer living in Squamish, BC. My articles, short stories and personal essays been published in The Globe and Mail, The National Post, Explore, Mountain Life, SFU’s anthology: Emerge, two North Shore Writers’ Association anthologies, Room, and in Rock, Paper, Fire: The Best of Mountain and Wilderness Writing. I have won four writing competitions (see my writing page). In 2007 I participated in The Writer’s Studio (TWS) at SFU, and in 2015, I completed my Master’s in Creative Writing at UBC. My memoir End of the Rope: Braving Mountains, Marriage and Motherhood will be published with Random House Canada in spring 2018. When I’m not working on my second book, Isobel’s Mountain (working title) I ski, trail run, mountain bike, and rock climb.
