Happy New Year!
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.
Merry Christmas 🎄
From my home to yours I'd like to wish you a very Merry Christmas! Keep safe, stay home, do what you can so that everyone is at your Christmas table next year.
The Life, Death, and Legacy of Rehtaeh Parsons
The crimes against Leah's daughter highlighted significant problems with many of the institutions parents rely to keep their children safe and eventually, this story would the catalyst for change. It’s just a shame that Leah’s daughter Rehteah had to pay for those changes with her life.
The Gift of Life
Happy Birthday Rehtaeh! You would be turning 25 today and all I felt this morning when I got up was immense saddness. I cried so hard for you today, and for all the yesterdays we never had a chance to share.
“Police have now confirmed: 14 students dead, all women.”

My site has been down for the past couple weeks as I worked on an update and made some changes. Just getting things ready for the upcoming book release (still looking at May 2021).
Please take care of yourself and stay safe. COVID-19 has been an international nightmare and it’s going to take a heavy toll...
