Her first novel, From a Good Home
, was published in 2016. It begins the story about a fictional St. John’s family, the Sinclairs. It received positive reviews and was promoted throughout Atlantic Canada. All Good Intentions
, the second in the series, continues the story of the lives of the Sinclair family and friends. She is currently working on the third book in the series, Share and Share Alike
