About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I'm a writer and am looking for some fresh metaphors or even a different syntax. My husband and I a taking a year to travel and write. We have chosen Europe as our destination. If I'm not writing I'm not very interesting.

ABOUT ME

I've spent the better part of my life living in a small ski town in southern British Columbia, skiing, mountain biking, road riding, white water paddling, and most recently, rowing. I've written and published a novel, collection of shorts stories, essays, and written and performed my own plays. For the past 12 years I've been teaching writing and literature at a local college. My husband and I have traveled through India and Nepal (we adopted a beautiful daughter from Nepal who is now in Theatre School at University of Victoria). We also brought her older sister over from Nepal 4 years ago to live and work in Canada. This year is all about change.

PHILOSOPHY

Never take yourself too seriously.

Interests

I love Middle Eastern and Balkan Music and Folk Dancing (I'm not very good at any of this). I love languages but I don't speak any other than English. I am a good skier, swimmer, cyclist. My passions are poetry and stories.
