The mother of three daughters, Valerie has been an advocate for her oldest daughter Madeleine for many years. A former social worker, Valerie led a special education parents’ group at her children’s elementary school, helped found the advocacy group, People for Education, and now works as a writer and editor for community and health care organizations. In her spare time, Valerie trades stories with the very creative members of her writing group. She lives in a not-so-empty nest in Toronto with her husband, Bruce, daughter Maddie, an aged cat and a slightly neurotic dog. Her youngest daughter, Anna returns home for summers!
