About Our Big Little Place
Our Big Little Place is my first story for younger audiences.
This book came about very naturally. I live in Toronto, I'm a millennial, and I have a tiny apartment. Myself and my friends in this city live, love, and in some cases start families in homes that are often much smaller than the ones we grew up in. Space is on my mind frequently.
Our Big Little Place was my response to that. I was fortunate enough to have a wonderful, happy childhood with a loving family. The imaginative play you see in the book is straight from my own life. My goal was to show that a happy home can exist anywhere there is love, play, and imagination.
I'll let you decide if I've succeeded.
