I was born a writer. According to my mother, I scribbled
when just a toddler and hid all the pencils on her. As soon
as I learned the alphabet, I wrote, and I've written ever
since. I won some short story competitions at the age of
twelve. When I was seventeen, I wrote short children's
stories and illustrated them for a magazine. I am published
During my career as a wife, mother and then single mother,
I wrote many stories by hand. After my children grew up, I
started writing seriously again and put all these stories
into book form, writing my first complete novel by hand
until my son convinced me to tackle the computer.
I was gifted with many talents. My hobbies are, gardening,
sewing, embroidery, knitting, painting, drawing, and many
other crafts. But writing is my main talent and whenever I
can, I now concentrate fully on it.
For the past 25 years I have lived in beautiful B.C.
Canada. I share a home with my son and twelve year old cat.
