More About the Author

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, 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.

Product Description


For as long as 12-year-old Paige Morrow can remember, the tree fort in the giant oak near her cottage in Ontario's Muskoka has been her sanctuary. Now, everything is changing. It's the summer of 1971, and she and her little brother, Toby, have been at their cottage with their mother since school let out. But this year, Paige feels more alone than ever. Her father has stopped coming up from the city on weekends, while her mother buries herself in whiskey and writing. Paige retreats to her tree fort, but becomes concerned when the farmer who owns the property hires a creepy arborist - a "tree doctor," Paige's mother calls him. Is something wrong with the farm's apple orchard or with her tree? When Paige befriends the arborist's troubled teenage daughter, Janine, and her group of rowdy locals, she is pulled into a maze of dark secrets and shocking truths that leads to a life-and-death confrontation.
