I love to write.
Writing greeting cards.
Finding the perfect words for a picture.
And writing grocery lists, too.
After working as a copywriter in the advertising industry, I decided that it was time for a particular story to leave my mind and land on the blank pages in front of me.
My debut novel Me and My so-Called Friends was written over a nine-month period in a local Toronto coffee shop. A favourite among the middle school crowd – including the parental units as well. Stirred up many crucial conversations.
The Get Up Book is my second novel that contains a collection of short stories that explore unforgettable life lessons. Each tale is perfectly paired by a physical exercise followed by a few words of advice from a collection of mentors that have made an impact on our world.
Then there are, of course, my blogs. Written for others and written for me.
What do I write about? Self-care tips. Insanely simple recipes. The true meaning of a friend, and anything else that I feel the world needs to know about.
What do I do when I’m not tip-tapping on my keyboard? Eating my homemade almond butter and drinking the very best coffee I could find. But most importantly, taking care of myself and spending time with those that matter.
I could not accomplish the above without my education.
Concordia University’sCommunications Studies program is where I found my writing voice.
Algonquin College’s Advertising program showed me that I could handle pressure, with deadlines, too.
Born in Montreal and presently living in Toronto with my husband, Gordie, and our three children, Josh, Adam, and Olivia.
