Storyteller. Poet. Essayist.

I read, write and drink coffee (a lot of coffee) on Canada’s west coast, on the unceded traditional territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations. Culture, place and identity are prevalent themes in my work, which has been published in the Globe & Mail, Room Magazine, The Fem, The Timberline Review, Plenitude Magazine and Peacock Journal among other print and online publications. In 2016, I was awarded the 18th annual Writing for Children Award for best picture book manuscript by CANSCAIP and the Writer’s Union of Canada. I am currently writing a novel about the Holodomor.


Thanks for visiting my cozy corner of the web. I hope you make yourself at home.
