In the crazy days of new motherhood, I was worried that I would forget how tiny my daughter was, when she first smiled, and how exhausted yet exhilarated I was. So I began to write a journal about her. As time went on, I found that motherhood was an inspiring topic for my poetry, fiction and non fiction.
NON FICTION ARTICLES:
My provocative essay “what are they” published in the Toronto Star about biracial children caused quite a stir and stimulated a lot of letters to the editor. Read “What Are They?”.
CBC Radio One
My essay about prenatal testing was broadcast on CBC Radio One. The program aired on the day I returned home from the hospital with my newborn son. Listen to “Testing, Testing”
While I was writing my book Baby for Beginners, I starting writing non fiction articles on motherhood. I wrote the article “Endings and Beginnings” because I felt quite sad about weaning my son, my last child. This essay was published on canadianliving.com.
