I’m the author and illustrator of The Chronicles of Kendra Kandlestar: The Box of Whispers, the Door to Unger, The Shard from Greeve, The Crack in Kazah, and the forthcoming final installment. I’ve also illustrated picture books for other authors too, including I’ll Follow the Moon by Stephanie Lisa Tara.
I like to think of myself as a daydreaming specialist. Constantly daydreaming used to get me in a great deal of trouble, but now I find it keeps me out of it. When I’m not daydreaming myself, I teach daydreaming—mostly to kids who, it seems to me, are already pretty good a daydreaming, but many of them just haven’t learned that they can put it to good use. I’ve taught workshops in Canada, the US, England, Korea, and Thailand.
I enjoy mythology, history, and the mysteries of the universe. I love to visit exotic places where I can find tombs, mazes, castles, and crypts—not to mention tiny places tucked between the cracks of here and there.
Things I like: books, art, music (alternative-folk), the colour orange, movies with Jedi in them, kimchi, and my R2D2 droid (yes, I have my own). Things I do NOT like: ketchup, eggs, Anne of Green Gables (sorry, Canada), stories that begin with “Hi, my name is . . .” and stories that end with “. . . it was all just a dream.”
