I was born and raised in Vancouver, B.C. and lived in both England and the U.S. before settling in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island in 2003.
Passionate about books, art, women's lives, country living, personal growth, life learning, and pudding, I had thought about the idea of writing a book of stories about women in my community for some time, until my sister gave me a boot in the you know what and I actually got busy and did it.
I live in a kooky yet charming house with my husband, daughter, dog, guinea pig, and chickens. This is my second The Passionate Life book.
