She was a semi-finalist for the Katherine Paterson Prize for Young Adult Literature, as well as for Canada’s Arthur Ellis Award (Unhanged Arthur category). She reads obscure fiction in English and French, and doesn’t know why Quebec isn’t more often a mise en scène for romantic suspense. After the Winter is her first published novel.
