My short story anthology, Passages has seven award-winning tales in its pages including:

• "The End of the Harvest," possibly my favorite story.

I am a diligent writer, an avid reader, and a lifetime lover of books. When I’m not at home hammering out my newest story, you might find me browsing through the half-million titles at one of my favourite Chilliwack haunts: The Book Man.

I was born just metres away from the Atlantic Ocean in Placentia, Newfoundland, and am incurably drawn to the sea and all its music. I currently reside in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada, with my husband, David, and my dog, CoCo.
