I'm a full-time author, who also freelances as a graphic designer and translator to help pay the bills. In my free time, I love to read, play with my daughter and my dog, and take any excuse to play outside. In particular, I love to rock climb, backpack, and trail run. I also crochet and make miniature sculptures with polymer clays. Ok, to be honest, I have a ton of creative hobbies that I practice so infrequently as to be barely worth mentioning, but let's summarize by calling me crafty and leave it at that. I've lived in five countries around the world, and seven states within the US. I currently reside in Winnipeg, MB (which is in Canada).
