My mother was gifted in the paranormal. No bad witches or things that go bump in the night but we sense energy, communicate with spirits, and have had experiences that the English language cannot describe.
As an adult, the people who became my mentors were Dr. Deepak Chopra, Gary Zukov, a Buddhist nun, Wayne Dyer, a Shaman, my Reiki Master, and my minister. My interests have no limits. Currently, I am researching the world of Isam and have studied spanish, french and japanese languages.
Of course, my friends and paramedic co-workers have all played a part in who I am today. I worked as a Paramedic for several years in the City of Edmonton's emergency department. On February 15, 2002 I received an Exemplary Service Medal from Lieutenant Govenor Lois Hole and Govenor General Adrienne Clarkson. I am now retired and getting acquainted with the world of seniors.
To relax I knit, walk my sheltie, read, write, play poker, and garden. Being thankful for having lived in a free country and enjoy the privileged life style with high standards in education and health care, I have given back. I have participated with Habitat for Humanity and assisted in building homes in El Salvador. I have helped at soup kitchens and served meals to the homeless. I have participated in rescuing cats, dogs and horses.
I now have the time to write. When my first novel, The Guardian's Wildchild, appeared on Amazon's virtual shelves, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Writing is magical. Sitting down at the computer, the inspiration of scenes, characters, dialogue, and plot take over. The words flow like a river, full of eddies and undercurrents, coming from some distant source, taking me to a place I've never been before.
