My Books

Why I Write

I write mostly to make Acadian history and culture more accessible to all. It is my passion. My novels celebrate the bonds Acadians have with the Mi’kmaq, Cajuns, Germans and others. My picture books were inspired by personal experiences, such as helping to save the tallest Sitka spruce in the world.
