I am a Toronto-based author of three novels: Stealing Nasreen, Six Metres of Pavement (which won One Book, One Brampton, 2017, won a Lambda Literary Award in 2012 and was short-listed for the Toronto Book Award in 2012) and the recently released All Inclusive (a Kobo 2015 and National Post Best Book of the Year). I was named as one of CBC Books’ “Ten Canadian Women Writers You Need to Read Now”, was voted Best Author in NOW Magazine’s 2015 Best of Toronto Readers’ Choice Poll, and was the recipient of the Writers’ Trust of Canada’s Dayne Ogilvie Grant (2011). I curate the Brockton Writers Series.
I am a proud member of The Writers Union of Canada.
