I live in Vancouver, Canada with my husband, daughter and two cats. My fiction has appeared in Imaginarium 3: The Best Canadian Speculative Writing, Shimmer and On Spec, and I have work forthcoming in Spectacle. In 2012, I attended the Clarion West Writers Workshop. I am still digesting all the things I learned there, but I know for sure that the experience made me both a better writer and a better person.

My creative interests include hauntings, in-between spaces, abandoned buildings and people, family and relationship dynamics, the meaning of home and finding that which has been lost. Most of my stories take place in real-world settings with a twist of strangeness to cast the everyday in a new light.

I have two novel projects currently on the go. Magpie explores human relationships with objects — the emotional significance we ascribe to our possessions and the power those objects have over us. Also, psychic abilities, sisters and creepy old houses. My current (untitled) work-in-progress is essentially a contemporary Little Women meets Practical Magic.

Besides writing and reading, I enjoy fumbling around with my camera and cooking (mostly vegetarian) meals for friends and family. Yoga keeps me calm.
