Creative Writing Projects

I'm currently working on a novel based on my experience driving across Canada with my husband (then boyfriend) five years ago. We drove from Vancouver to Newfoundland and Labrador and back again. Six weeks, over 20,000 kilometres, and lots of amazing experiences. For a short account of the trip, read Canada By Car, a piece I wrote for The Peak.
