I am a life-long Quebecker, currently living in Westmount. In addition to my fiction and non-fiction books for children, I am a regular contributor to children's magazines such as YESMag, Cricket, CHIRP, Helix, Faces, Odyssey and Read.


My readers often ask me why I write books. I tell them it is because I like to do creative things and I find writing to be a very creative exercise. It is also because I can't dance well and I can't sing well, so I try my best at writing well. I hope my books educate, entertain and inspire children.


I am available for school presentations and workshops.
