Born, raised and enjoying life in Canada - I love being Canadian!
My childrens' books are based on travel and adventure in Canada; and about discovering unique and fun places to visit in each province and territory. Learning about Canada, need not be boring!
Winter Moose makes his grand debut in Winter Moose Visits Montreal.
Where will he go to next? Winter Moose Visits Alberta is on its way. Anticipated launch date is March 16, 2019. Stay tuned for more details.
My Canadian themed childrens' adventure books were inspired by my 2017 visit to Bruce Peninsula National Park in Ontario. Bruce Peninsula is a true beauty to behold! I remember walking excitedly upon the vast expanse of rounded white rocks while balancing myself and holding the hand of my then three year-old.
I stopped for a moment. When I lifted up my head, I saw the most breathtaking, dream-like body of water in front of me. Countless shades of blue sparkled and challenged me to look away. I could not! MY LIFE WAS NEVER THE SAME AFTER THAT...
In 2017, Canada celebrated its 150th anniversary and allowed free entry into its National Parks. After I visited both Bruce Peninsula and experienced a relaxing canoe ride in Point Pelee's swamp land (Point Pelee National Park), my imagination woke up from its deep sleep. It was sooooo exhilarating to feel the creative juices flowing again! And so here we are now! I often find myself wanting to scream out, "MY BRAIN IS ALIVE!" But then, people would find me weird!
I am very pleased that my 14 year old daughter (13 at the time of drawing) was willing to contribute a few illustrations to My Great Canadian Adventures book. She has been drawing since she was 5 years old and I have always been her #1 fan!
