I grew up on a farm outside of Marwayne, Alberta, Canada and since then have lived in three western provinces. Now I live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan while I spend a few weeks every winter on Salt Spring Island, BC. My love of nature shows up in my writing and art but I'm also a participant in Project FeederWatch and the Great Backyard Bird Count, two citizen science programs by Birds Canada.
I'm working on a book about my parents' lives. They survived personal tragedies that also touch many families today. A title is still in progress, as well as the book.
