"Fill the paper with the breathings of your heart."

William Wordsworth

I was a writer before I even knew that "a writer" was a thing you could be. 

 

Words are the medicine I have been turning to, for as long as I can remember—when needing courage, when seeking clarity.

My pieces have been published in Reader's Digest, Sacred Pregnancy, elephant journal, and Rebelle Society. They have been translated into German and published in a German magazine. They have won awards and accolades but, what matters infinitely more than this, is that they have continued to nourish and sustain me throughout the various chapters of my life. 

My first book, brave new mama—a celebration of the magic and the madness of the first-year of motherhood—was published at the end of 2017. It was named "one of the best new mom gifts of 2018" by BabyCareMag and chosen as "one of the best fall items to cozy up with" by The Bump to Baby Show Toronto. It is a repeat #1 bestseller on Amazon Canada.

If you love words— and are curious about mine—you can find me here, filling the paper (screen) with the breathings of my heart.
