My first book, Tangles: A Story About Alzheimer’s, My Mother, and Me, has been published in Canada, the US, UK, Germany, France and Korea. I’m working with Giant Ant on a feature-length animation of Tangles. My second book, Agnes, Murderess, was published in Canada in September 2019 by Freehand Books.

I have an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia, and have been teaching comics classes there since 2012. It is really the best job in the world.

I live in Vancouver, BC with my partner and my tiny dog. I’m recovering from the nine years I spent with murderous Agnes by drawing a small, cute character named Therapy Pony and figuring out what that will turn into. I sometimes post these explorations.
