I’m a writer and ESL teacher from Canada’s west coast. I have an honours BA in English and German from the University of Victoria and an MA in English from Dalhousie University in Halifax (yes, living near the ocean is a necessity for me). I also have half of a PhD in English, which I decided to not continue, for reasons not related to my love of literature, which remains pretty strong. I am especially partial to that which is queer, feminist, Canadian and/or written by women. Some of my favourite authors are: Alison Bechdel, Dionne Brand, Ivan E. Coyote, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Shani Mootoo, Alice Munro, Eden Robinson, Sarah Waters, Zoe Whittall, Jeanette Winterson, and Virginia Woolf. When I’m not reading, I enjoy experimenting with creative vegetarian(ish) cooking, practicing ashtanga yoga, running, cruising around on my bike named Harriet the Spy, drinking copious amounts of tea, and going to see live music.
