When in the public school system, I wasn't much of a scholar, but I did like to learn. So after my mandatory sentence at Grand Forks Secondary School, I got a job and told myself that I'd never going to school again. Within five years me, the non-scholar started night school.

Moving away from home when I was young, too young for some, I did most of my growing up in the big city. Vancouver, BC. It had the jobs, the night life, and more life lessons than a late-teen ever wanted or needed to learn.

I don't like to admit writing stared in high school with poetry, then transformed into journalling throughout my twenties and later. What I would say, is all that writing didn't help me when I wanted to write fiction.

I gave herself a online handle of emaginette, dug into writing manuals, blogged, joined writing groups to get this far and I suppose it will take me even longer still to grow into what some might call a bigger fish. And that's okay with me because...

There's always a bigger fish-Star Wars Phantom Menace

In fiction, I've had four short stories and, one novel published. All crossed genre with mystery. My most recent short fiction is Mexmur, the Huntress published in Portals: A Fantasy Anthology (June 2014) by Roane Publishing, who recently closed their doors.

White Light, a paranormal mystery novel, was originally published with Three Worlds Press (Dec 2015) until they closed their doors, and since, has been self-published. In non-fiction, I have one published short. A Complete Thought was published in the Insecure Writer's Support Group Guide to Publishing and Beyond (Dec 2014).
