cropped-image1.jpgI’m a writer who teaches and a teacher who writes. And I’m a twin from Newfoundland who has lived in a lot of different places.

Toronto, Tokyo, Texas, Quebec, Calgary  and Newfoundland… to name just a few.

I’m an alum of The Banff Centre, The Humber School for Writers, Sage Hill, The Bard Institute for Writing and Thinking, and The Damarsicotta Lake Writers Conference, all workshops where I was privileged to work with the finest of mentors. I’m a member of The Toronto Writers’ Centre and The Writers’ League of Texas.

This year I am on a Writing/Reading/Swimming Sabbatical, and spending quality time with my husband, who works in Texas.  Diving into it all, face and eyes, as we say in Newfoundland.

Some sabbatical highlights: Getting to read from my manuscript in progress at the Writers At Woody Point Festival in Newfoundland last August as well as participating in, and winning, The Muskoka Novel Marathon manuscript contest in July.

I’m currently writing and editing something in the neighbourhood of 3 novel manuscripts and one short story. Let’s see how this goes…

Here are the blogs of some of my treasured writing cohort

Thank you so much for following my blog, Chasing the Stars 🙂 I’m happy to learn that you are both a writer and a teacher, which are two things I really like to become myself 🙂 It’s also glad to know that you are currently pursuing your novel-writing dream 🙂 I hope you enjoy your journey. All the best on your endeavors! Stay beautiful! 🙂

    1. Hi Caleb,
      Yes! Thanks for the msg. I tried to change it but obviously too late. I’m going to be in the neighbourhood in about half an hour. Any chance I could stop by and pick it up?
