“I believe that writers can change the world. We have the power to tell stories and share ideas that can fuel social change. It’s both an extraordinary privilege and a daunting responsibility.”
— Ann Douglas
I am the author of a number of bestselling books about pregnancy and parenting (including The Mother of All Pregnancy Books and The Mother of All Baby Books) and a magazine writer and content creator who specializes in writing about parenting and health. My most recent book is Parenting Through the Storm: Handling the Highs, the Lows, and Everything In-Between, a guide to parenting a child who is struggling with a mental, neurodevelopmental, or behavioural challenge. I am frequently invited to speak at health, education, and parenting conferences about the issues raised in my books and at conferences for writers.
I live and work in Peterborough, Ontario, where I volunteer my time with a variety of projects and causes. I am currently serving on the national editorial board for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health’s Portico website and the social media team for The Canadian Red Cross. And I recently collaborated with Partners for Mental Health on this child and youth mental health advocacy letter and this series of mental health videos for parents.
In June 2013, I became the second person ever to be awarded a Lifetime Membership by the Professional Writers Association of Canada (in recognition of my contributions to the freelance writing profession).
In April 2012, I was one of 16 Canadians invited to Rideau Hall to discuss family policy with Canadian Governor-General David Johnston and his wife Sharon Johnston.
