She lives near Montreal with her family, who are an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Rock Mammoth is her first book.

“Using the format of a school notebook containing Louis' hilarious marginal notes and diagrams reinforces the classroom venue and enhances the comic visual presentation of unflappable Louis and his very cool rock mammoth. Whimsical, imaginative, and highly entertaining.” - Kirkus Reviews
“The scientific method has rarely been introduced with more giggles than in this amusing story...With the current emphasis on STEM, this book will be an enjoyable way to introduce science concepts.” - School Library Connection
“The tale of scientific (or, OK, ‘scientific’) discovery is thrilling from first note to last.” - Booklist
“Combining humour, information, tall tales, and accessible comic-style drawings, Rock Mammoth is a sure hit.” - Montreal Review of Books
“Sketchy and cute...This book would be fun to use by having students critique and ‘mark’ Louis’ oral presentation and research methods.” - CM: Canadian Review of Materials
