About the Author

A voracious reader all my life, I thought it would be a good idea to get out from behind the books and study theatre in University. I was wrong. After one year at Acadia in Wolfville, N.S. I switched locations and majors and studied English Literature and History at Concordia University in Montreal. I dabbled in theatre, television and film for a while (translation: I was your barista) but – other than *cough* Fubaring myself in a minor Canadian cult classic I was going in the wrong direction and always felt better behind the scenes anyway. I finally wised up and went back to school to study journalism. What can I say – I’m a late bloomer.

These days I spend a lot of my time in the kitchen and write mostly about food (you can check out my food writing here: www.beetonabun.com if you would like). I still find myself trying to read as much as possible (and not just to the seven-and-under crowd) and am currently working on a couple pieces of fiction.

  1. I have no idea when you started this up again but I’m really glad you did. I remember you, I totally recognize that impish and perfect photo of you.

    I too studied English and history, after deciding to change my minor from theatre. We have much in common, actually, not just those things.

    But I could never make myself read the whole NCL series. You’re brave. What you said about Moodie’s whiny account made me laugh, because that’s precisely how I felt about it. That doesn’t stop me from having a lovely edition of it that matches the lovely edition of Traill’s Backwoods of Canada…but anyway.

    I’m glad I’ve found you again.

  2. I love this idea! Brilliant.
