After graduating university with a degree in History and absolutely no clue what career path I wanted to follow, I found a job as a bookseller at Barnes & Noble. Of all the part-time jobs I had held previously, this was the first that felt like the right fit – I enjoyed my co-workers and loved perusing the aisles while pretending to clean. Though I had been an avid reader as a child, I lost my love for it during university, where I was consistently drowning in readings. It was at Barnes & Noble that I decided I wanted to have a career in stories, in whatever shape that would take. I applied to the Ryerson University publishing certificate, and had the privilege of interning with Penguin Random House Canada, Scholastic Canada, and Wattpad Books, before finding a place at WCA.
What I like to read
While my tastes are ever evolving, I am a loyal member of the legions of children deeply affected by Harry Potter, so anything with witches is a winner in my book.
