Since 1999, I have been a health researcher and writer. My career has taken me on a path where I have learned about the beauty of science, of integrity, and of the search for truth through research. And, I've been fortunate to do this alongside wonderful mentors, colleagues, and students.

Over the course of my time in academia, I also have had the opportunity to experience the realities of a scientific career and the pressures that exist in that world.

It has been a dream come true for me to combine my love of writing with my love of research in my first work of fiction set in my home-town, Edmonton. I hope it is as enjoyable for you to read as it was for me to write.
