My readers often ask me why I write books. I tell them it is because I like to do creative things and I find writing to be a very creative exercise. It’s also because I can’t dance well and I can’t sing well, so I try my best at writing well. I hope my books educate, entertain and inspire children.

My non-fiction books are about Canadian history. They are real-life stories that really happened. My fiction books are stories I make up with my imagination.

You may have also read articles, poems or craft projects I have written for children’s magazines, such as Highlights, Faces, Cricket, YESMag and KNOW.
