Hi! I live in Cornwall, Ontario, a small city in Eastern Ontario located near the US-Canada border.
I have been married for over forty years and have three adult children and five wonderful grandchildren.
I enjoy camping and gardening in the warm weather, but winters I prefer to stay indoors with a nice glass of Merlot.
I am Presbyterian and proud of it, and God and church play a significant role in my life.
If I’m listening to music, it will be something from the Golden Oldies period, with Elvis and Neil Diamond topping the list.
I have an eclectic taste in movies, but I draw the line at slasher flicks and horror. My imagination won’t let me forget those quickly. I love science fiction and fantasy and James Bond is my hero.
I love to read; I immerse myself in the text and, as my husband says, the house could fall down around me, and I’d never notice. My preferences are as varied as there are genres, but nothing really beats a good romance, especially one that is filled with suspense. I love historical romance too, and have read quite a few of those. Nora Roberts is my favorite author.
If I’m watching television, you can count on it being a suspense — I’m not a fan of reality TV.
Writing gives me the most pleasure. I love creating characters that become real and undergo all kinds of adventures. It never ceases to amaze me how each character can take on its own unique personality; sometimes, they grow very different from the way I pictured them!
Inspiration comes from all around me; imagination has no bounds. If I can think it, imagine it, I can write it!
