I am the author of an inclusion and friendship picture book, STEAM novel, historical fiction and narrative nonfiction, and two sea otter adventure tales for young readers. Believe it or not, researching for writing children's books can be fun!

On my journey I've discovered fascinating details about inclusive playgrounds and adaptive equipment, STEAM topics, Okanagan history, the Empress of Ireland steamship, Finnish immigrants, spies and sabotage during the First World War, and sea otters and the ocean.
