Her first novel, Three Souls, was a finalist for the 2014 BC Book Prizes Fiction Award and her second novel, Dragon Springs Road, was a Canadian bestseller. Both were nominated for the International Dublin Literary Award. Her third book, The Library of Legends, was a Book of the Month Club selection and a Canadian bestseller.
