I'm an artist, poet and writer, retired from the workforce where I worked in Marketing and then Adult Education.  I grew up on classical music, classical writing, and with a love of nature.  I'm a Pixy who's happiest near water and mountains, the source of my spirituality and inspiration.  I'm a survivor that has managed to live through the challenges of all that entails - and am now in the process of re-creating the next stage of my life journey.

I'm currently working on my first novel; a mystery story for young adult readers that is set in Georgian Bay in Canada; and am almost finished the first draft. I plan to create a series based on this first book. I have another novel in the works - a contemporary romance, which is sitting on the shelf until after my mystery book is completed.

I have also edited two books: "Legends of The Spectral Realms: Love", a fantasy book written by D. J. Ebenal and published by Golden Tree Books, which can be found on amazon.com; and "Free Dive: Beyond the Blue Curtain", by Stephen Francia, found at Smashwords.com. Being both an editor and a writer is often a struggle, since my inner critic's voice is very loud and never takes a day off, lol.

My favourite quote: "One day the sun will shine again. Make sure there is a part of you that is still ready." - "Be Calm", Daisy Seal.

My debut poetry book, "Poems of Living, Loving & Lore" is available for purchase at Xlibris, Amazon and Barnes & Noble, in print and digital formats.
