Except for watching the occasional baseball game with my family, I wasn’t into sports as a girl. Instead, it was music and folklore that interested me, and that I eventually went on to study. After grad school, I got a job at Folkways Records in Washington, DC. It was there that I first became interested in Métis music and culture.

Living in DC, I could hardly help becoming a fan of the Washington Capitals, our NHL team. As I read more and more about hockey, I noticed the absence of attention paid to female players and their experiences. Seeking out their stories, I began to craft my own, centered on Agnes Demers, a Métis hockey player in Saskatchewan.

Seeking the Center is my first novel.
