About MeI write middle grade and young adult fiction. I'm in love with stories and the sea, and can often be found curled up with a good book and a cup of tea, or + read more wandering the beaches near my home in Campbell River, BC. In my non-writing life, I work as a Licensed Practical Nurse. I'm married to my high-school sweetheart and have four children. Show Less
