Thank you so much for dropping in.
I live with my family in southwestern Ontario, Canada. I followed a professional career as an Accountant and Business Manager until 2012. Now I’m retired and thrilled to be able to write full-time. It is my intention to publish traditionally and will be querying agents and publishers in Canada, the US, and Britain for my newest novel “The Artist” very soon.
I write genre and literary fiction, including mystery/thriller, horror, and romance. Using my organizational skills, I treat my writing as a business, and work hard to produce an enjoyable product. I love weaving unique and emotional characters into complex and logical plots. The results are interesting fictional stories in diverse settings.
Please check out my blogs under the heading “My Thoughts”. They include personal news, writing tips, insights and opinions, and a some fun ideas.
The “Short Stories” heading takes you to several short stories. They are my attempt to handle various genres and hopefully provide emotional connections for readers.
Under the “Scarecrows” heading is information on my novella published by Samhain Publishing, Ltd., of Cincinnati, OH. “Scarecrows”, released May 5, 2015, was well received and garnered over sixty mixed reviews. It was included in the”Childhood Fears” Anthology produced by the same publisher.
Samhain Publishing closed its business effective February 28, 2017. “Scarecrows” is not available for purchase online at this time. I do have a Limited Edition paperback available. If you wish to obtain either “Scarecrows” or “Childhood Fears”, please contact me for information.
I have been out of the loop because of my fight with breast cancer. I was diagnosed in September 2016. Two surgeries removed the tumors, and I was in chemotherapy until July 2017. The side effects took time to manage, and given my greatly limited time and energy, my writing had to be set aside. Nerve damage and mild PTSD also set me back for a time. I’m now starting to resume my blogs and other social media activity. The good news is I’ve been cancer free for 18 months and feel like I’m back to normal.
Thank you for visiting my site. Take your time and have a look around. Feel free to leave comments on any page or posting. I would love to hear what you think of my work.
