I am a novelist and journalist in Toronto, Canada. My young adult novel SNAKES & LADDERS was published in 2009 by the Dundurn Group. If you are interested in the Canadian countryside and forests, you might enjoy the book. It is also quite adventurous (even though a big part of it takes place in a single treetop).
I've published many reviews and articles with a bunch of publications in Canada, such as CBC.ca, The Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, Toronto Life, Quill & Quire, Chatelaine and ELLE Canada. My favourite authors is Elmore Leonard, though these days, I am reading Tolkien (yes, for the first time!). My favourite books are Watership Down, For Whom the Bell Tolls, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Catcher in the Rye.
I am a former chef, and in my spare time I love to cook. I am working on a cookbook of Canadian cuisine, which will include a lot of maple syrup and bacon.
I am also at work on a top-secret Christmas book.
