I am a professional writer and editor with an avid interest in children's literacy. I have had an enriching career. My story begins with editorial positions throughout Ontario in business trade magazines and some fashion and freelance in between. After shifting my focus to corporate communications and editorial consulting, I decided to plunge forward back to university for an MBA. Along with my corporate writing and consulting work, I write children's books.
I strongly believe that literacy is key to development. Without positive exposure to books, words, stories and interaction, children will not become literate. Toys that teach have many benefits when coupled with proper interaction and skill-building techniques. But we must always be aware that one of the first steps to learning is creating an environment rich in language. Through my books, it is my goal to aid educators and caregivers to create such an environment.
