Born a coal miner's daughter in a small town in the Canadian Rockies to parents who told stories, I started reading early and read my way through school, three pregnancies, two marriages, two divorces and other miniutiae of daily life.
Wrote about 55 romances for Harlequin and other romance publishers. Started the Blue Collar B&B. Ads said, "Romance writer wants to hear your story." Build it and they'll come proved to work.
Wrote Blue Collar B&B, Adventures in Hospitality, about running a B&B in Vancouver, B.C.
Am now operating the reincarnated version of the Blue Collar in the town where I was born, Sparwood, B.C. (See, you can go home again!)
I'm working on a couple of ebooks, one of recipes and one about fishing. Nothing like diversificaiton. I'm having fun.
Still reading. Still writing. It's the only way to live a life.
