Her debut novel, The Weather Inside, was published in 2016 and her new novel, Nine Dash Line, is coming from Freehand Books in fall 2022. She has been awarded several literary grants, made the CBC short story prize longlist, and founded The Cecil Connelly Awards for Literary Persistence. She holds her master’s degree in political science (with a specialization in international security studies), and lives in Toronto where she works as a writer in educational television.
