Where are you from?
North Vancouver, BC, Canada
When did you become a writer?
When I was about eight. Before that I just told stories to everyone.
That’s like asking if I have a favourite child. Dessert in general, mangoes and avocados in particular.
Are you a night owl or a morning person?
I’m a morning person, especially in new places. My favourite thing in a new place is to be among the morning people as they go to work or school or play. To see how the world wakes up and gets going in that place. The littlest morning things say so much about who we are.
Best writing tip?
Do it and keep doing it. Don’t stop doing it until you have something. That’s always the hardest part.
Do you do school presentations or Skype calls to groups?
Yes, and I love to. Go to my connect page to drop me a line about what you’re after.
Are you writing another book?
Yes, I am. It involves a ruined city and a teen mother and so much more…
Dogs or cats?
Dogs. But I also really love tigers.
