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.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be an author when I grew up. I’m so lucky that I’ve been able to make that happen. I also went through periods where I wanted to drive big trucks for a living and take people on multi-day wilderness trips – it’s kind of cool to imagine how different my life might have turned out if I’d taken those roads. I still dream of working with horses again.
I’m currently at work on a new full-length novel, and I’m very excited about it. My next non-fiction book (with the Royal BC Museum) will be published in 2015.
When I’m not writing, I spend time hiking or hanging out at the beach with my boys. I like to stay physically fit, so I work out a few times a week. I journal a lot, and don’t read nearly enough. I’m working on that.
