I was born in Hampstead, a suburb of London, England. I came to Canada with my parents and grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan. I’m a graduate of Central Collegiate and the University of Regina, where I received my BA in English. After living in Winnipeg and Moose Jaw, I eventually found my way to Vancouver, where I earned my MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia.
I’ve been a freelance writer for assorted newspapers and magazines, a temporary secretary in London, a travel agent and the Managing Editor of a literary magazine (Prism international).
I spent a few years working for TELUS in Burnaby, BC, as an in-house travel consultant, a word processing clerk, a contract management clerk and a tech writer, creating and editing student materials for TELUS Learning Services.
In 2003 I graduated from Vancouver Film School’s full time program in Writing for Screen and TV.
I currently work as a Programs Assistant at the University of British Columbia.
I’ve been writing all of my life.
