Hey! Thanks for visiting.

I’ve loved poetry all my life. I wrote my first published poem when I was five, titled “At the Arena,” about trying to figure skate. I fell down a lot. Now, I just inline skate…and don’t fall down nearly as much as I used to.

I think I started writing books of poems when I was just 10–by stapling papers and drawings together. My first published book for children was an Eppie-award nominated e-book of poems (Bubble Mud and Other Poems). I’m also the author of two poetry collections for grown-ups (Where the Butterflies Go, Leap), and my two non-fiction books for children, on Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Kim Campbell, are part of a wonderful series of books about Canada’s Prime Ministers.

I live in Canada’s french-speaking province, Quebec, where there’s lots of beautiful wildlife to photograph. In my free time, I love to inline skate, to do cardio-boxing and to draw a cartoon or two—and you can tempt me with mint-chocolate chip ice cream any day.

My second collection of children’s poems, The Groovy Granny (Graceful Publications, 2011), was illustrated by my five-year-old daughter, Kayla.  It has been reviewed as “priceless” and “destined to be a family heirloom.’ Get your copy here The Groovy Granny or email me at writer@hgrace.com to arrange for a signed copy (paid via Paypal).

Publishers and teachers, please email me at writer@hgrace.com for inquiries about purchasing the rights to use and distribute these poems/drawings. I’m a member of the League of Canadian Poets, and available for library and school visits. Thanks so much for your interest in my poetry.
