I’m a reader, a writer, an editor, a teacher and an absolute madwoman when it comes to pursuing interesting ideas. Like budgeting and financial management. And raising kids who aren’t afraid of the world outside our four walls. I wish I had seventy hours in every day to fit in all the things I want to learn about and do.
I’m currently at work on three full-length novels and a shorter, high-interest book for middle-grade readers. My next non-fiction book (with the Royal BC Museum) is on its last round of edits and will be published in 2015. I have a cool job writing interesting articles for magazines. One of my current assignments is to do a bunch of almost-crazy things, like eat insects and drive a race car and go flyboarding. I love my job, and wouldn’t trade it for any other.
This year’s challenge is to read these 50 novels (with all the time I have, see). They say I’ll be a better person at the end of it. Maybe I’ll even be a better writer, too.
