Alice6The only girl in a family of boys, I found my best friends between the pages of a good book. Snuggled in a warm quilt, I chased bad guys with Nancy Drew, nursed the sick with Cherry Ames and honed my imagination with Anne of Green Gables. As a teenager, I discovered Harlequin romances and have been hooked on  the genre ever since.

Always a history buff, I earned my B.A. from Queen’s University at Kingston with a major in English and a minor in history, then went on to teach those subjects at a high school level. Over the years,  life took many twists and turns, with several career changes, but my love of romance and belief in happy endings never wavered.

My writing has taken a new twist in the past few years.  My mixed choir of adults and children is constantly in search of a Christmas Musical Play.  For our resources, there seems to be a dearth of available material, so I’ve now added playwright to my other hats.

I live with my husband and two cats  on beautiful Vancouver Island. When not spinning tales in front of the computer, I enjoy   needlework, gardening, music and the ocean view from my kitchen window.
