I live in Rossland, a small town in British Columbia with my husband, Doug, and my adorable three kids, Alexander, Jill, and Charlie. I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, gardening, storytelling, sewing, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and doing everything that is interpretive. I’ve had lots of different jobs in the forest industry, working in remote locations such as Haida Gwaii and Mackenzie B.C. I have many exciting stories to share, such as being stalked by wolves and being chased by a grizzly bear, as well as all the other adventures I endured while cycling across Canada. Ask me about the flying potatoes!

Seventeen years old and still aging, Ximena was born in the heart of cowboy state, in the United States of America, only to promptly move to the much chillier city of Ottawa, Ontario. Not long after, she crossed vast tracts of land to arrive in Trail, British Columbia, where she enjoys hiking and backpacking in the treacherous mountain paths, amidst crowds of ravenous bears, the raven eyeing her from the towering pines. When not braving the wilderness, she spends her time parked in front of a computer, drawing and painting various masterpieces, furthering her knowledge of decorative knot work, or studying whatever subject tickles her fancy.
