With love and gratitude in my heart and soul, I say thank you to my parents…

With love and gratitude in my heart and soul, I say thank you to my parents and hello to our mutual dreams.

Missing them feels similar to claustrophobia sometimes.  But the missing is infused with deep gratitude for the childhood and camaraderie they gave me.

In 2012, my father knew, before he died, that we had fulfilled our goal of creating a book, and I am eager to finally share Drawn Together with the world- just a few weeks from now!

My next book, Molly, is a project my mother was deeply passionate about and my parents and I researched Vancouver history together.

It’s a remarkable healing process for me to carry on “our work.”

There were so many epic, powerful, joyous, deep, difficult, wonderful experiences in 2012 but truly, for me, the best was watching my children living their dreams, traveling the world, pursuing their passions. I love being a mom.
