Freelance Writer – Kidlit Enthusiast – Silhouette Crafter – Mindfulness Mama
I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with my husband and three children. I graduated from the University of Alberta with two degrees. First, a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in History and minoring in French Language and Literature. After I completed my Bachelor of Education Degree (Secondary Route). I taught with Edmonton Public Schools for 9 years but then decided to stay at home full time with my 3 children. I have a passion for learning and empowering our youth. I have coached girls and boys softball, bowling, and was the Speech and Debate coach while teaching. Some of my greatest assets is my passion and commitment to empower those around me and to share my love of learning.
Once my third child was born I decided to stay at home which was a difficult decision for me as I have such a passion for education. While off with my children I regained my love for reading especially children’s books. I have taken courses in writing for children and learning how to edit children’s books. I have been a member of the Society For Childrens Book Writers and Illustrators for the past 4 years (SCBWI). I’m currently working on a number of projects in between everything else.
I love sharing my passion for books, writing, creating in whatever form it may take. I didn’t want to remain a technology dinosaur and have my children bypass me so I began this blog 5 years ago. And of course it also meant learning a lot about computers and websites. I began on a blogspot account and then later switched to wordpress. I have not looked back. Everything is done by me. I now have a vast knowledge of running a successful wordpress site, content creation, email marketing and newsletter creation, graphic design, and social media engagment. And I love to share and grow with other like minded women.

My Writer/Blogging/Social Media Skills
I write and create for my blog audience on a variety of different topics. I have been a kidlit book reviewer from the beginning and now have over 50+ reviews completed for authors or as a part of a blog tour. I offer a free printables library to newsletter subscribers as well as an engaging and inspirational monthly newsletter. I design and create everything. It’s a labour of love. I took the Pinning Perfect Ecourse over 2 years ago and now have Pinterest as my highest ranking social referrer.
The comfort zone is the great enemy to creativity; moving beyond it necessitates intuition, which in turn configures new perspectives and conquers fears. ~ Dan Stevens
