I am an accomplished Calgary-based writer who helps people and organizations share their stories, identifying the powerful narratives they live out daily but haven’t yet articulated. I co-authored a memoir with the western singer Ian Tyson, and the book became a national bestseller. Those I write about often contact me afterwards to express gratitude for how I portray their stories. My writing has been professionally recognized with multiple awards, including two National Magazine Awards and three Western Magazine Awards.
After nearly a decade in journalism, I have storytelling experience across all kinds of media, ranging from magazines and books to TV and Twitter. My writing has appeared in Reader’s Digest, National Geographic Traveler and the Globe and Mail. As well, I have been a columnist for the Calgary Herald and Alberta Venture magazine.
I am currently represented by the Canadian Writers Group, a literary agency that partners with Canada’s best freelance writers.
