I am an author, environmentalist, music teacher and mother. I love nature and wild spaces. In my writing I explore relationships between people and nature. 

Ursocrypha: The Book of Bear is an adult fiction novel, soon to be released on Amazon. Previously published as The Bears, Ursocrypha is the story of what happens when an oil pipeline in Northern British Columbia ruptures. The ensuing environmental disaster precipitates a crisis for three environmentalists, an adventure woven together with bear spirituality, and the voices of three bear characters: Tlingit, a polar bear, Moksgm'ol, a Spirit bear, and Yukuai, a captured panda bear.

My most recent full length novel is about bees, I'm currently seeking traditional publication for this manuscript. Look for the first chapters of the next book in the Sarah Spellings series, coming in 2017!
