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 YA novel, “Flying With a Broken Wing,” was published in September 2013, and made the 49th Shelf`s Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2013 list and The Bank Street College Best Books of 2015 list.
I blog about my writing journey, books, and any little thing that catches my attention. 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!
