Welcome to my website! I’m a young adult/middle grade author, speculative fiction geek, ex-pat, ex-clown and ex-museum curator.

I have written four books, all published by DCB (an imprint of Cormorant) – you can read more about them all via the links on the right. My newest, shiniest one is called A Mist of Memories, and it is about a strange island swathed in mists, a missing girl, gaslighting, grief and things we want to forget. You can find out more about that one on my publisher’s website or read the Kirkus review.

My first novel, Transferral,  a young adult speculative fiction book, was optioned by Temple Street Productions, and nominated for the 2017 Manitoba Young Readers’ Choice Awards, the Snow Willow Award and the Sunburst Award. It has been translated into French and is available from Michel Lafon.

My second novel, Tangled Planet, came out in Canada in October 2017, and the US in spring 2018. It received a starred review from School Library Journal and was longlisted for the Sunburst Award

My third novel, The Magpie’s Library, a middle-grade fantasy, came out in the US and Canada in 2019. It was nominated for a 2021 Northern Lights Award and named one of the Ontario Library Association’s Best Bets for 2019.
