Considered an authority on writing middle-grade novels and early chapter books for children, I support new authors by delivering tailored presentations at conferences and writing workshops and frequently giving book talks at literary festivals, library events and schools. Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I have visited over 200 primary schools across Canada and in the United States.
I also offer mentorships and regularly jury national and regional writing competitions. In addition to fiction, I freelance for travel magazines about my family’s sailing adventures aboard our boat, Cape Fear. More information about me can be found in my short bio or my compilation of common questions.
