In January 2016, I launched my labour of love and debut book celebrating the lives and contributions of traditional farmwives between the ages of 55-90 on Canadian family farms. Their tireless devotion to their families, farms and communities needed to be honoured. You can find that book here, and see press on the warmly received project here.


Now it’s the “next generations” turn. My second #farmwivesbook is slated for release in early 2018 and I’ve interviewed farm women from across Canada about how things are changing, what their challenges are and hilarious stories too. Be prepared to be inspired.
