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 have queried publishers in Canada, the US, and Britain.
I write contemporary and literary fiction, mystery/thriller, and contemporary fiction. 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 above “My Thoughts”. They include news, writing tips, personal opinions, and a some fun ideas.
The “Short Stories” heading takes you to several short stories. All very different genres. They test my ability to write various styles 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 fifty 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. A Limited Edition paperback is available. Please contact me for information. The Anthology “Childhood Fears”, which contains “Scarecrows” and 3 horror/thriller books by other exceptional authors, can still be purchased from bookstores and on-line book sellers, where the print book is available from their stock.
I’m currently completing a Supernatural Thriller titled “The Artist” and should ready to send queries out very shortly.
My apologies for missing much of the action these last few months. I’m now a cancer survivor (diagnosed September 2016). Two surgeries removed the tumors, and I received chemotherapy to increase my odds against new tumors. Side effects took time to manage, but I was able to write in the limited time available, and have concentrated my efforts on the new novel, “The Artist”. I’m hoping to resume my blogs and other social media activity this summer.
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.
