The desire to write remained strong though and in between acting gigs, she began to scribble down her first novel for teens (which permanently resides in a drawer). Writing seemed to be her real calling and after many years of practice, and lots and lots of reading, she signed on with agent Michael Bourret at Dystel & Goderich Literary Agency. In the fall of 2008, he sold her first novel, a young adult book called Restoring Harmony, to Stacey Barney at Putnam (May 2010). In 2009, Putnam bought her second novel, The Right & the Real.
She currently lives on a tiny island in British Columbia with her musician husband, Victor Anthony, and two cats, Miss Sophie & Miss Marley. As for the future, their only plan is to avoid real jobs, write and play guitar in front of the wood stove, and live happily ever after.
