Writing

I am an associate member of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators  (SCBWI) and friend member of the Canadian Society of Children’s Authors, Illustrators and Performers (CANSCAIP).

I have two works in progress:

Fiction

A STEM novel about a 16-year-old animal-lover who travels to Madagascar to follow her dreams of becoming a primatologist like Dr. Jane Goodall, but in a twist of fate ends up helping save one of the world’s rarest animals and discovers her true calling. This tale was inspired by the true conservation story of one of the world’s rarest birds.

Non-fiction

A middle grade book that follows real kids aged 9-14 on their journey to set up a Wildlife Club at their school and carry out fun activities that help the planet.

My son Glen with a stick insect while visiting a butterfly garden in southern Ontario. There is nothing like getting up-close and personal with a wonderfully unusual animal to experience the magic of our natural world.

My son Jeremy helping plant a pollinator garden in his schoolyard. This was one of the projects of the Wildlife Club.
