“My body of work examines the extraordinary inside the ordinary.”
I write literary fiction that speaks to a global audience from a very specific Canadian Indigenous perspective. My work delves into issues of identity, loss, ties and the severing of such, anxiety and the attempt to live with normalcy in an unnatural world. Through each story are the voices, stories, teachings and lands of my Anishnaabe and Metis grandmothers.
