Welcome to my Blog…

If this is your first time visiting, I’m a women’s fiction and romance writer AND a misplaced beach gal who lives in the Canadian north where winters last forever and summers are too short. I share a lot of snow and cold filled moments but sometimes we talk about books, flowers, giveaways, characters, and life’s lessons. Okay, my life’s lessons…of which there are many. Feel free to comment at the bottom of any entry, but if you’re too shy, that’s okay. Just know I love having you stop by for a visit.

Reading & My Dad

I inherited my nose from my dad. I also inherited his calves, his easy going personality and his love of reading. He died in 2009 but my all time favourite picture of him shows him sitting on the beach in a lawn chair, a book in his hands with the sun shining down on...
