I live in a beautiful garden. It entertains, nourishes and sustains me. When I'm not gardening I'm writing, building on my career as a journalist at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, where I produced stories from around North America and the world. One of my documentaries led me to write a book, Citizens of Nowhere, about the difficult adjustments young refugees in Canada had to make in their first year. Anxiety over a partner with cancer and grief led me to write about a garden - a Victory Garden. That memoir, A Victory Garden For Trying Times describes a year of a garden during a time of love, hope and despair. My latest book, a novel, called Rains, At Times Heavy will be published in October by Caitlin Press and become an audio book to be produced by Tantor Media.
Now and then I write travel articles. Now and then I concentrate on photography. I always garden when I can.
