Bio I'm a journalist, author, screenwriter and long time resident of the British Columbia Interior. I have written countless feature articles on topics relating to the natural world, agriculture, and tick-borne illnesses. I also lead workshops on how to transform genealogical information into vibrant stories. My books include the memoir "Rain on a Distant Roof: A Personal Journey Through Lyme Disease in Canada" (Signature Editions, 2013), the short story collection "The Things She'll Be Leaving Behind" (Thistledown Press, 2018) and the historical novel "The Haweaters" (Signature Editions, 2020), which was shortlisted for the 2021 Fred Kerner Book Award.  I'm currently working on a screenplay and in the advanced stages of writing another book.
