Occupation: Writer

Place of Birth: Charlottetown, PEI

Where’s your favourite place in PEI to grab a coffee?

Can I backspace coffee and make it vanilla tea? If so, Timothy’s is my go-to place.

Where’s your favourite place in PEI to grab a pint?

The Old Triangle, but only if they have a free cozy to hang out in.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in PEI?

I adore Charlottetown’s downtown in the summer. So many fun shops, bistros and galleries, filled with tons of people and excitement.

Where in PEI would we stand to see your favourite view?

At the top of the hill overlooking St. Peter’s Bay. It’s the most breathtaking sight anywhere.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit PEI:

1. All the tourist draws, from Anne of Green Gables to the whole of Cavendish, a horse drawn carriage ride through historic Charlottetown, attend a toe-tapping ceilidh—just for the fun of it.

2. Visit both shores. I’m partial to the South on the Northumberland Strait with its red cliffs and sinking mud that makes your skin so soft. But don’t forget the North—the Atlantic side boasts the most beautiful white sand and dunes that go on forever.

3. Get outside the city on a clear night and look up. You’ve never seen so many stars.

What makes PEI such a special place on earth for you?

My soul lives here. I’ve tried to move away so many times only to be convinced this is where I’m meant to be.
