You don't want a stranger speaking for you.
Let's get acquainted.
I have always enjoyed writing, ever since I learned to string words together to tell a story. Like many young writers, I chose a “safer” career path to begin with and worked in TV production, and then in corporate communications. But writing has always been part of my life, and eventually working with words became my career.
I love to learn, so writing non-fiction has given me a great excuse to learn more about a lot of subjects, people, and places. I’m not intimidated by unusual or complex topics.
As a corporate communications specialist for large firms, non-profit organizations, and Crown agencies, I tackled everything from media relations to internal and stakeholder communications.
I'm the author of four published non-fiction books and wrote chapters for four additional books. I love the way that writing a book allows me to thoroughly explore a topic and get readers excited about it.
My home base is in Toronto, Canada, but I spent seven years living in beautiful Wellington, New Zealand. Living in another country was an excellent way to gain perspective. It has enabled me to see different points of view, and to realize that I can never make assumptions about what is “normal” or “common knowledge” to others. This has been a great help in my work.
I have two wonderful rescue dogs who supervise me at my home office. My interests include camping and hiking, cooking and baking, fitness and nutrition, and travel.
But enough about me. Let's talk about you!
