I am a writer, editor, poet, storyteller, Reclaiming eco witch, mother and grandmother.
I live in Ottawa Canada — unceded and unsurrendered original territory and meeting place of the Algonquin, St Lawrence Iroquoian and Anishinabewaki, (ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᒃ) people; later settled by English, French and other Europeans; now also home to immigrants and refugees from Asia and the Middle East as well as innumerable generous plant and wary animal beings.
For many years, my company Wordsmith Writing and Editing Services has been contracted by NGOs and government to write and edit public health resources on the topics of mental health promotion, tobacco control, healthy weights, cannabis, HIV/AIDS and other social and health issues. In addition to that work, I am also currently writing educational articles for the Canadian Space Agency.
As I ease into my crone years, my writing has become more focused on crafting words that strive to echo the magical and mythic voices of the living land and her beings.
