Creating fictional people since 1989.
Most kids have an active imagination. My imagination has stayed strong into adulthood, and I’ve funneled that creativity into a successful writing career. I write history, both fiction and nonfiction, because although your school history classes may have been boring, the past is not. My goal is to bring the past to life in all its myriad of colors.
Experience the past through Angel of Mercy, Heinous: Forgotten Murders from the 1910s, and A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1.
I write with the assistance of a furry writing buddy – AKA the family cat who often sits with me while I work.
When not researching, writing or editing, I’m wife to a wonderful man who also is my copy editor and mother to a budding baker/guitarist/architect.
The portion of my brain that isn’t filled with fictional people is filled with song lyrics. I listen to hard rock daily and find entertainment, inspiration and comfort in it.
Namaste. I practice yoga daily for a balanced body and mind. But, no, I can’t do a headstand.
Another way I express my creativity is through the camera lens. I especially enjoy nature and architecture photography.
I cook most meals from scratch. I’m a healthy cooking advocate, much to my husband’s chagrin.
