I started writing poems and short stories as a child. In High School, a great teacher Lenore Hawley, inspired me and in 1995 I pursued my life long passion for writing.
In 2006, I was accepted into the University of Toronto's School of Creative Writing where I honed my skills.
I have many writing influences. As a child I read the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. I enjoy reading mysteries and Canadian authors are my favourite.
