Welcome to my website. Here you will be able to find information about various aspects of my professional life as a poet, novelist, children's author, and non-fiction writer, and as a workshop facilitator, occasional radio broadcaster, and teacher of creative writing, children's literature, and a course on L.M. Montgomery at the University of Prince Edward Island.
Currently I am writing a children's book set in 1864 for a P.E.I. Literacy Alliance project to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown meeting that led to the confederation of Canada. The Acorn Press (acornpresscanada.com) will publish the book in 2014; the illustrator is Brenda Jones, who also illustrated the original version of my children's book, Lobster in My Pocket, and who made all-new illustrations for the second edition of the book (Nimbus Publishing, 2010). As well, I am writing a book for Nimbus for their series, Stories of Our Past.
Please investigate my website, and contact me if you would like more information or to arrange readings, workshops, or school visits.
