I'm Averill.

I write young adult novels on nights, weekends, and lunch hours. I like to write somewhere at the intersection between serious issues and swoony romance. I’ve rarely met an enemies-to-lovers I didn’t like, and redemption arcs are my jam.


Besides writing, I spend my free time reading, swimming, and watching the same TV shows and movies over and over again. I’m a mental health supporter, Tom Hanks superfan, and enthusiastic hugger. I can quote the entirety of The Princess Bride and listen to too much 2000-era pop-punk to be considered cool.


I hold an Advanced Diploma in Business Aviation Management from Georgian College and a Bachelor's of Education in Adult Education from Brock University. During the day, I exercise the left-hand side of my brain as an aviation data analyst. 

I am also the founder and organizer of the Ottawa Writer's Circle, one of the largest and most active Meetups in Ottawa.
