The writer has a degree in English literature, and has specialized in children's books written by Canadian authors.

She has chosen the pseudonym CanalKin in honour of her paternal grandmother who, as a girl, grew up poling the canals of Holland in a houseboat that also served as a source of income for the family. That story has yet to be written.

Right now CanalKin is busy raising her dog, Benson, who in turn is supervising his own little dog, Javah, a rescue.

Join as a fan or a follower, and you will be kept informed about the field of kids lit and the antics of Benson and Javah.
