Stories, Poems & Articles

My stories, poems, and articles have appeared in various literary and academic journals in Canada and Australia, and on CBC radio. I co-edited Outside of Ordinary: Women's Travel Stories (Second Story Press, Toronto, 2005) in which thirty-two women write about how their travels around the world have affected their perspectives on life.
