I was born in England, studied art in Toronto, married my high school sweetheart, and have one child. When not illustrating and writing, I’m off sailing with my husband and son on our yacht. I’ve sailed over 50,000 miles, crossed the Atlantic four times, dodged whales, survived storms at sea and anchored in the harbors of 24 countries.

I’ve been an illustrator for a quarter of a century. I’ve been a book author for under a decade.
