Stories have always fascinated me, and as a result, I am constantly reading. My love of literature has bred into a need to write and I'm currently working on my young adult manuscript.
As a recipient of an artist grant from the Canada Council of the Arts, I have been given the wonderful opportunity of time to spend revising my young adult novel. I love the magic of words, and how they've transported me into the lives of my characters. I've been known to get lost in my story, lose track of time, or call my children by my main characters' names, but I've never been more excited about the chance to write. For the next few months, I'll be working hard on making my manuscript ready for submission.
As a high school English teacher, I am always looking for books with which my students can relate. Visit my blog, where I offer book reviews, creative writing ideas and ways to encourage young readers and authors.
