You’ve found my website. I’m so glad you decided to visit.

While you are here, please feel free to browse, where you can find short stories that have been published in literary journals, my current blog, Tortuous Tales, a media kit, and my publications on Amazon.

Very soon, I hope to add a monthly newsletter that will provide updates on projects and when you can expect to see the second book in the series of Dragon in the Mirror and maybe a sneak peek (hopefully, without spoilers!) about what to expect in the next book.

So please make yourself a cup of coffee, or a cup of tea (I’m an earl grey fan, myself), kick your slippers off and step into my world.

However long you can stay, I will be happy that you stopped in for a visit. Please, feel free to come again - the door is always open.

My Portfolio

Here is a list of my published work.


Ah, impossible dreams: they’re the best kind, aren’t they? But it’s okay, because I have to tell you, I love to write. Fiction is my favorite, and my preference seems to be living in fantasy worlds. But I’ve also dabbled in non-fiction as seen with some short stories that are on my blog, Tortuous Tales.

I live in the Northeastern part of Canada with my husband and my senior dog. (Yes, even though he’s an old Pup, with grey hair, he’s still my baby.) When not working on my writing, I enjoy running, reading, long walks, sipping tea at coffee shops, or I’ll kick back and hang out with my two favorite boys and watch TV shows on Crave or Netflix.
