I live on a mini-acreage on Treaty 7 land with two small humans, one regular-sized human, and a very large husky. I tend to write most about LGBTQ2S+ issues, climate, politics, mental health, and parenting. But I’m also easily drawn in by pine trees, wool, ski tracks, bikes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and other diversions. At the moment, I'm taking a break from freelancing with some full-time work as a travel writer.
Once I start writing, I try to keep going until I get to the place Shel Silverstein describes as “where the sidewalk ends”—that small space between what we know and what we don’t, where only words and stories can lead us.
I have a Masters of education, a teaching degree, and an undergrad in political science, English, and history. I’m a parent, a partner, a queer woman (she/her), a settler living in a teeny cabin at the seam of the foothills and the mountains on Sioux/Stoney Nakoda and Blackfoot (Treaty 7) land. I’m a font snob, a coffee snob, and a recovering grammar snob. Though I was once given the nickname "vocabo" and I'm going to keep that one.
