Her first memoir, The Queen of Peace Room, was shortlisted for the Canadian Women’s Studies Award, ForeWord magazine’s Book of the Year Award, and the Judy Grahn Award.

A second memoir, Street Angel,received the Silver Medal from Independent Publishers Awards and was short listed for Book of the Year/memoir by Foreword Magazine. Street Angel is set in Newfoundland in the 1950s, but ranges over a 70 period involving the same protagonist and her family.
