I grew up in Prince George, BC (yeah, it's pretty cold) and moved south to Vancouver (yeah, it's pretty wet) to attend UBC where I received my BA in English and Psych. Now I live in Richmond, BC with my brilliant, computer-geeky-cool husband and two fantastic kids. And two cats (can't forget the cats!). I'm repped by The Chudney Agency in NYC, and you can find me at my blog, facebook, twitter, goodreads, or pinterest.

Did I mention there's romance, too? Because there is. And I love West, I think she's an awesome character with a lot of guts. A few agents have told me she brings to mind a teenaged Lisbeth Salander crossed with Jason Bourne. A Salander-Bourne baby! That is one mind-blowing compliment!
I watch a lot of movies and I read as much as possible. I love that my husband and I have passed on our love of manga to the kids. I run way too much in a futile effort to burn off excessive chocolate consumption. And my favourite superstition? Jinxing myself by even thinking about the possibilities. I try not to look too far ahead, just enjoying each day for what it is.
