A former CBC Radio host and producer, I’ve lived and worked in Vancouver, BC, Calgary, AB, Thunder Bay, ON, and London, England. In my years with the CBC, I hosted and produced regional and national radio programs (“Morningside”, “Sunday Morning”, “Gabereau”), wrote a syndicated parenting column and appeared regularly on arts and entertainment programs across the country.

My book reviews and op-ed articles have appeared in The Globe and Mail, the Calgary Herald, and Active Adult, and I’m the author of three novels: Harrow Road (Mediscript Communications: 2017); Displaced Persons (NeWest Publishing: 2004) and Some of Skippy’s Blues (Robert Davies Publishing: 1997). I’m also the author of a collection of humorous essays, 60 IS THE NEW 20: A Boomer’s Guide to Aging with Dignity, Grace, and What’s Left of Your Self-Respect (Mediscript Communications: 2011).

In 2006 I went back to school (University of Guelph) to get my Master’s degree in Capacity Development and Extension, focusing on facilitation and conflict management. Currently, I live in Port Moody, BC, and am happy to announce that my next novel, Rose Addams, will be published in Spring 2003 by NeWest Press. Please check it out!
