I was drowning. Except instead of water, I was submerged in an ocean of my own emotions. They clouded my vision as much as they suffocated my breath. I couldn’t see my way out of the depths. But this is what I was supposed to feel, fresh out of a 12 year relationship, right? Continue reading
Long weekends are one of the best times to pick up a new book. Considering that we’re celebrating Canada 150 hard AND Canada Day is just around the corner, I thought I’ve waited long enough to remind people what The Lit Squad’s final reading recommendations were for Indigo Books‘ current Read the North campaign. Continue reading
Just under a year ago, I launched a book club with Chapters Indigo, a company I’ve loved since before I worked there during my teens. I remember sitting in the aisles for hours (being moved periodically by the staff) reading and browsing, knowing full well each time I’d leave with a bag full of books that would be devoured in less than a week.

About the Author
I’m 34, but look 24. I love style, but hate materialism. I adore animals, but eat meat. I run, but hardly stretch. I’m awkward, period.
