The Journey Continues

Remember that exciting news I promised? I can finally share!

Coyote Queen, the book of my heart, is a story I’ve been trying to tell since I first got serious about publishing more than 15 years ago, and I can’t wait to share it with all of you!

I’m deep in revisions on the story now, but I’m carving out plenty of space this fall to celebrate the launch of my second book, The Rabbit’s Gift, a story set in a world where human babies are grown in cabbage-like plants and delivered by rabbits. Please join me at one of my two launch events!


I’ll be in virtual conversation with acclaimed author Anne Ursu at 7pm Eastern on October 25th (hosted by Talking Leaves Books). Preregistration is required, so secure your spot now!

Readers in Southwestern Ontario, please join me for an in-person celebration on Saturday, November 5th at 2pm in the Mount Zion Lutheran Church Auditorium. This free, not-to-be-missed event will feature a reading, autographs, snacks, and live rabbits for petting!

Keep an eye out on my social media and events page for a variety of guest blog posts, podcast interviews, author meet and greets & more!


Preorders are incredibly important to authors; they give publishers important information about how much excitement there is in the market for any given title (thus helping them gauge which books to support). I’d love to share a small token of my gratitude to readers who support me in this way. There are a few options to claim your preorder gift.

American Readers: Preorder from Talking Leaves Bookstore; the signed book and swag will be mailed to you.

Canadian Readers: Preorder from Words Worth Books; the signed book and swag will be mailed to you.

Another option: preorder an unsigned copy from your favorite book retailer. Fill out this form (and upload your receipt), and I’ll mail your swag as well as a signed bookplate (an autographed sticker you can place inside the book).

“An enchanting exploration of the importance of perspective and what it means to lead with an empathetic heart.” Booklist

“A clever tale of cabbage, rabbit babies, mistakes made, and lessons learned.” Kirkus


Unfortunately, I’ve finally been hit by the supply chain issues plaguing the industry. Fortunately, the paperback release of THE WOLF’S CURSE has only been pushed by a couple of weeks. The new publication date is October 11th, and it’s available for preorder now!


My publisher, HarperCollins, is hosting a giveaway. Sign up for the chance to win one of five finished copies of The Rabbit’s Gift! (An extra copy could be a great holiday gift or donation to your child’s classroom!)

It’s been a wild year since my first book came out; I can hardly believe that I’m already speeding toward publication of my second book and working on books three and four. None of this would have been possible without the support of each and every one of my readers, so I’m signing off this post with a heart full of gratitude. Thank you all for your support!
