Writer & Editor
Author of "Highrise: The Towers in the World & the World in Towers"
(Firefly Books, 2019)
I have written for many magazines, including The Walrus, ROB, Broadview, This, Canadian Living, Geez and Today's Parent. My first book, Highrise (Firefly, 2019), was nominated for a 2020 Forest of Reading Award.
While my interests are broad, my passion is to write about human rights issues both at home and overseas. I have travelled the globe to cover stories in Niger, Uganda, Brazil, South Africa and Mexico. I've also been fortunate enough to win some awards along the way.
I’m a storyteller with an insatiable curiosity. In the past 20 years, I’ve applied my editing and writing skills to print, digital and broadcast for both media outlets and non-profit organizations. I also sew! You can check out my creations here: GezelligStudio.ca
“Weaving together social and political history, information is framed in a lively manner that will help readers understand the social and environmental contexts of communities living in high-rises around the world.” Kirkus
“Highrise is an exceptional guided tour of skyreaching residential structures around the globe... The innovative interactive storytelling that distinguishes the online documentary translates well to print.” Linda Ludke, Quill and Quire
“It's just excellent and really, really interesting. I'm so proud of you. I'm always proud of you, but this beats them all.” Mom
