I love telling stories. I worked as a radio and TV reporter for 17 years first in small towns in southern Ontario and then in the wonderful city of Toronto. For the past 21 years I’ve been writing stories for magazines, newspapers and websites. I love writing stories that reveal a part of the world that no one knows about. I also love writing humour essays.
I work for business clients, as well, and specialize in health, real estate and lifestyle.
Over the years, I’ve written for magazines like Reader’s Digest, Best Health, Chatelaine, Homemakers, More, Elle, Style at Home and Good Times, newspapers like the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Toronto Sun, Metro and National Post and websites like cbc.ca where I wrote a column on gender for five years.
Currently I write for a column about residential architecture for the Toronto Star , called ‘Wow Factor’ which I absolutely love. It has allowed me to see some of the most spectacular homes in the world and interview some of the most innovative architects.
I also write for the Queen’s Law Review and Franchise Canada.
I published my first novel, A Crack in the Pavement, in September of 2013. It is now available in select Indigo, Coles and Chapters stores in Toronto (John/Richmond, Beach, Richmond Hill, Yonge/Eglinton, Indigospirit at Mount Sinai Hospital) as well as all Book City’s (Danforth, Beach, Bloor and Yonge/ St.Clair), A Different Booklist as well as on Amazon.ca, Amazon.com, Indigo.ca, Kobo and Kindle.
In Ottawa it is available at Books on Beechwood, Perfect Books, Prospero – the Book Company and Indigo St. Laurent as well as at the Ottawa Public Library. The Toronto Library, Mississauga Library and Kingston Frontenac Library have also added it to their collections. North of Toronto, you can purchase it as the Curiosity House Book Store in Creemore.
