My Writer Bio.
I’ve been writing all my life, and have authored paperback novels, biographies and ebooks. I hold a degree in Creative Communication with a major in Journalism.
As a journalist and author, I’ve been a features writer, a poetry editor, a columnist and contributor to newspapers and magazines, had my poems, reviews, interviews, profiles, editorials and columns published by Zygote, Prairie Fire, Prism International, Grain, Contemporary Verse II, Winnipeg Free Press, THIS magazine, Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Black Cat 13, Herizons, and many other print publications.
I was managing editor of the Canadian Women’s Health Network, a national quarterly, for two special issues on the theme of diversity and women’s health. I’ve worked as company publicist in the performing arts for Vancouver-based Headlines Theatre for Living and Winnipeg’s Ruth Cansfield Dance Collective. I’m past-president of the Board of Directors of Prairie Fire Inc., and a founding member of Zygote and Verb magazines.
I’ve written and had commercially published six novels. I’ve received numerous arts awards and grants for my writing. I act as a mentor and consultant to other writers, have conceptualized and facilitated writing workshops, and been an assessor for grant applications, book awards panels, and various writing contests.
