Her work has appeared in publications that include Rolling Stone, Outside, Maclean’s, The London Sunday Times, Saturday Night, Brick journal and The Walrus, on subjects that include the boomerang generation, the doctor-patient relationship, big game-fishing, women in the film industry, wilderness canoeing, the medical mistreatment of chronic pain, the contents of her closet, and our secret lives with Leonard Cohen.
