Real life: Permanent child wrangler (parent of four, English teacher of many) living in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.

Reviews: It's lovely to hear readers' thoughts on the stories I write, but I offer my work up here for free with no expectation of comment. My one request is that people not leave spoilers in the comments.

Note: Most of my earlier stories did not have the benefit of a beta's eyes, and therefore contain errors.

Favourite authors for content and style (in no particular order): Cherie Dimaline, Margaret Atwood, Louise Penny, Rumer Godden, Diana Gabaldon, and Ray Bradbury. I love both the stories they tell, and the way they write them. I read a lot of poetry, too.
