I was born in the year of the rat, under the sign of Scorpio...

Background Information

If I haven't lived through it, I've probably been close friends with someone who has. I can speak comfortably with all walks of life - ours and others ;-) And have walked on the plains of Karma. I am a Christian, and deeply respect the views of everyone (within reason I mean, I don't think murderers and pediophiles should walk beyond the getgo, but, hey, that's just me...)

 I've loved and been loved. I've seen death and was nearly killed. I've lived in huge mansions and tiny two bedroom apartments. I've earned more money than I've ever had since spending it. I've owned land, been abandoned (the divorced parents syndrome), given birth to children and raised geniuses. I've worked as a statistical analyst for a multi-national corporation and I've sat in the backyard listening to the birds sing for an entire day.

And when, during the past fourty years that I've been capable of putting thought into word and onto paper and had the time to do so, I've written, and written and written.    We still have our life altering adventures, for instance we nearly got our little selves killed when our cottage was hit full in the face with a tornado on July 29/02 - sure was a wake up call - even got interviewed as an almost 'late' top ranking writer/graphic artist - cool! I think....

I'm happily married to a wonderful man, have two great children, a kitty cat, a whole gaggle of guppy fish and a snail named Teckie and life is great!


I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Philippians 4:12-13


Working as a freelance writer and photographer, my work has appeared in newsprint over 1200 times since 1997. My poetry is in several anthologies and I've won four Poet of the Year Awards (International) and was nominated for the 2005 Award. My work has appeared in WIN magazine, Time, Peoples, and Canadian Living Magazine (and others). I ran a website for kids from broken homes until I was shut down by the host during a billing dispute - they were double billing - I wouldn't double pay!
The kids still have my e-mail address - and I speak regularly in schools to keep them up to date.

Additional Information

My favourite piece of dirty work is hiding under the watchful eyes of Mr. Robert Sloan (author of Raven's Dance - an excellent piece of work!) His well wishes include a very kindly placed compliment - he said I write like my mentor...Stephen King...Since I've neither heard from Mr. Sloan for over two years now, and his publication is no where to be seen - the above mentioned piece is going to be part of a horror anthology I expect to have completed in 2005. More recently I've been working as a graphic artist with six commissioned pieces for best selling author Mickey Stroda as well as selling her a lovely little psychotic piece - As of 2004, however, I've been commissioned to 'duck out of the horror world' and do a screenplay for a wonderful Canadian Actor who has done more Broadway Productions and films than I'll ever be able to see in my free time! I'll keep updating as the this continues.
