I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. In 2010, my first YA novel, “Bitter, Sweet” was shortlisted for The Geoffrey Bilson Award for Historical Fiction for Young People and made the 2011 Best Books for Kids & Teens list. I also write short fiction for adults. My work has appeared in numerous literary magazines and several anthologies. My short story “Alexander the Great” was nominated for the Journey Prize.
My next YA novel, “Flying With a Broken Wing,” is scheduled for release in the fall of 2013
I blog about my writing journey, books, and any little thing that catches my attention, but not necessarily in that order. Life is full of many wonderful things. We never know what is waiting for us around the bend. Being an author has given the me opportunity to meet some very interesting and talented people along the way. What an amazing journey this is!
