Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.

was born in Indonesia, and grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

I conceived my first middle-grade fantasy novel, Sophia Freeman and the Mysterious Fountain, during a trip to Gabriola Island, British Columbia in the summer of 2013. Then I took my work and settled in a small town of Enderby, where it’s peaceful and quiet. 4 years later, the story is complete. While book 1, 2 and 3 are being shared with the world, I am writing and illustrating book 4 of the Sophia Freeman series.

I am married to Sarah, my original fan and longtime love, in 2016. We live in Enderby with our pack dogs and school of fish!
