From the age of five, when I begged my mother to teach me how to read, my life has been, in one way or another, about books. In my childhood, I devoured them. At university, I studied them and earned a BA in English Literature. As an adult, I sold them, first at The Toronto Women’s Bookstore and later at Parentbooks. Now I teach children how to read them. And most recently, I write them. My poetry and memoir pieces can be found on my website as well as in the anthologies Hill Spirits II, III, & IV
(Blue Denim Press).
My Muse is nature, gardening, and the lives lived in an historic, octagonal house not far from the north shore of Lake Ontario.
