While I'm currently focusing my writing energies on a historical novel, for the past decade my publishing credits have been in non-fiction. I have a particular interest in profiles and creative non-fiction, and my writing about urban culture, politics and design has appeared in many publications including: Today’s Parent, Alberta Venture, Eighteen Bridges and Azure. I am a contributor to the anthologies In This Together and Broadview Anthology of Expository Prose, and have moonlighted as a CBC Edmonton AM summer travel columnist. While living in a notorious neighbourhood in Edmonton, I was often asked, "Why would you live there?" In answer, I wrote my debut book, Little Yellow House: Finding Community in a Changing Neighbourhood. Through the stories of my family and neighbours, I explore justice and injustice in city life. When not writing, I have worked broadly as an inner-city non-profit managing director, a political advisor to government ministers, a facilitator and communications consultant.
