Overview

I am a proud Canadian writer of fiction and non-fiction and am also an editor. I'm also mom to four great humans, one aging gracefully cat, and a slightly neurotic Jack Russel / Pomeranian cross who is currently asleep with her back jammed into the corner of the sofa and all four legs sticking up in the air. I'm not saying she's weird, or anything, but, she definitely is an original. I love family, nature, animals, music and yoga -- not necessarily in that order. I have a BA in English Lit, a MFA degree in Creative Writing, and a Freelance Writing Diploma. I have edited everything from novels, non-fiction books translated from other languages, self-help books, young adult novels, magazine articles, newspaper articles, and business writing. I've taught grammar tutorials to first and second year university students, and memoir writing to adults. I also am currently at work on my tenth novel. I have six novels published, one launching summer of 2020, one November of 2020, and another ready for 2021. Before I was writing, I was singing, and I have six CD's of original music sitting in the back of my office collecting dust. If you own a CD player, hit me up!
