About the Author
I was born and raised in a rural village outside of Moncton, New Brunswick, where I lived with my mother and sister in an old farmhouse with a pack of cats and acres of land for roaming. I first fell in love with words as a songwriter. I grew up playing guitar and later studied piano, which became the backdrop for my writing. I also used to write short stories and remember having a deep conversation with my grade four English teacher about the rules of grammar and how I absolutely had to break them because I needed to start my sentence with the word "and." I love to write stories about strong female characters in memorable settings along the East Coast of Canada. My first book, STUCK, is a coming-of-age story about a young Acadian woman growing up in a coastal fishing village near Moncton, New Brunswick. My second book, LETTERS FROM LABRADOR, tells the story of a young British midwife working in the beautiful yet unpredictable northern coast of Labrador, Newfoundland.
