Almost nothing makes me want to accidentally/on-purpose glue my hands together more than to be asked to write my biography, so instead I will simply say that I love to write, I love to read and I will try just about anything including unsticking my hands enough to tell you I live in Vancouver, I will travel anywhere to meet interested readers and writers of all ages, and I write fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
