I was born on Spring Equinox, on the cusp of Aries and Pisces. I’m also a Monkey. (According to the Chinese Zodiac.) I love the creative process in its various manifestations. Reading and writing are a way of life to me. Baking is fun too. Running is therapy. (My remedies for getting out of my writer’s head for a while, if such a thing is indeed possible.) My favourite colour is…well, that’s personal. My favourite book is Wuthering Heights. I eat plants. I need to live close to water and trees. I’m a bit of a nerd and that nerdiness resulted in an M.A. and Ph.D. in Human Geography. I have no desire to travel to outer space but a trip around the world ranks high on my bucket list. Writing has been my chosen method of self-expression from a young age. Last but not least, I bleed red and white, as any proud Canuck.
