I am a writer and physician living in Calmar, Alberta. I came to Canada at the age of five as a refugee from the Vietnam War. I love to write children’s stories that convey the humanity in our lives. For me, children are reminders of the beauty in a grain of sand, where lies the interface between art and science. Aside from my passion for writing and medicine, I love travelling the world, reading poetry, and just hanging out in the garden with my husband, our three rambunctious children and their five cats.
