About

I am an author, mother of four, and a committed indie shopper. I love to find unique items, particularly ones that have been made from recycled/upcycled goods. And if you've seen my Etsy shop, you already know that I love paper, vintage ephemera, and books (any vintage).

I am also the co-author (with my daughter) of Body Talk: The Straight Facts on Fitness, Nutrition, and Feeling Great About Yourself (an award-winning body image book for preteen girls).

In total, I've written 28 books, most of which address some aspect of pregnancy, parenting, women's health, and/or women in pop culture; and contributed to anthologies on motherhood, politics, and blogging.

I am the "Misconceptions" columnist for Conceive Magazine and I contribute a number of columns to various pregnancy and parenting magazines and blogs. See links below.

Needless to say, I am pretty passionate about writing and creativity. A few years ago, I was the president of the Professional Writers Association of Canada (http://www.pwac.ca), Canada's national association for freelance writers. I continue to teach writing courses, to mentor writers, and to speak at writing conferences.
