I love food and I enjoy being in the kitchen creating new things.

I’m a cookbook writer but I guess that isn’t a big surprise given how much I love to cook. In 2008 A Fork in the Trail was published by Wilderness Press. In 2011 I finished writing my second cookbook, Another Fork in the Trail, which is full of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free fare for backpackers and paddlers. It was released in June 2011. I’m just finishing up my third cookbook, this time for people who prefer camping in campgrounds.

I am the owner of Outdoor Adventure Press which produces Outdoor Adventure Canada and Wilderness Cooking. I am also a freelance writer for several other active lifestyle publications. When I’m not working at my writing career you’ll find me running, or chasing after my youngest daughter. I do like to cycle, hike, paddle, sail, take pictures, read books and poetry, do needlework, draw, and most of all… hang out with my wonderful husband and three awesome kids.
