Wonderpress is my Ottawa-based publishing shingle, inspired by my three nephews and their limitless capacity for wonder—about the world, everything in it and everything beyond. I launched Wonderpress in 2008 to put out a series of children’s books for the boys: Dinostory for Jonathan, Astrorocket for Isaac and Zootopia for David.

Since then, Wonderpress has expanded into online publishing with the website Kickass Canadians, which I founded to celebrate inspiring Canadians. Through that initiative, I published a limited edition photobook called WIDE OPEN: A Canadian Perspective. All proceeds from WIDE OPEN went to CARE Canada.

The latest Wonderpress release is a children’s book called Now That I’m Here. Written in tribute to a young girl named Kate Drury, the book will help raise awareness of mitochondrial disease, with profits going to the CHEO Research Institute.

I continue to dream up ideas for other publications, so visit this space to see which ones make it into waking life.

Now That I'm Here

Play for me, run for me, laugh hard and dream big for me

This loving, uplifting story offers families and educators an entry point to helping children understand illness and loss. All profits go to CHEO.
