A Bit About Me

My unique approach to memoir writing comes from a broad background in journalism, academic life writing research and journal writing. I have a Masters in English Literature--with a focus on life writing--and completed my certification as a journal writing facilitator (CJF).

My work as a journalist has appeared in both the public and business press and my completed ghostwritten memoirs are listed on the My Books page.  I  am also working on life story ghostwriting projects for Story Terrace in the U.S.

Teaching and coaching memoir writing is an important part of my work. I offer in person workshops and online courses  for clients around the world and in past have taught English and public relations at the University of Calgary and Mount Royal College. I am honoured to be a faculty member with Calgary’s Alexandra Writers Society and with the Therapeutic Writing Institute in Denver, Co.  I live close to the Rockies  in Cochrane, Alberta with my husband, a dog who thinks he’s the boss, and a cat who knows she’s the boss.
