For me, writing is more than a creative outlet; it also helps me make sense of the world. My curiosity about life and how we live it is insatiable. I am forever asking the questions, big and small. By telling my stories and sharing my perspectives, it is my hope that readers find connection, that they see themselves in what I write or that they find a new understanding.
My style has been described as akin to "thinking aloud." Sometimes it's humourous and self-deprecating, sometimes weighty and incisive. Mostly, I strive for uplifting and hopeful and always to be write with honesty.
