We can’t wait to work with her on her exciting ideas for the Writer in Residence program.”

Her most recent title, Convictions, was the winner of a Gold Moonbeam Award and of a Next Generation Indie Book Awards, and was a finalist at the Saskatchewan Book Awards and for the High Plains Book Award for Woman Writer.
