I may be short but my imagination is TALL!! Reading is like breathing to me, I couldn't live without either. Roxy


Background Information

I was born in Windsor, On. Canada to a Canadian bricklayer and an Americanhousewife. I was the first of three girls, but middle of five kids total in my family. With my dad's job, we moved around quite a lot making it very difficult for me tostay in one school for long or even to make any friends. With my lack of companions and my excess of books I thrived inside my own imagination, delving deeply into the world of books. School was quite easy for me and I zoomed through each year with little assistance, my love for books helped me greatly. When I was 15 my parents moved us up to kapuskasing, On. where I met my future husband and 3 years later we had our first baby, with our second baby following the next year after. Being a teen mother definitely was tough and my dreams of being a writer fell through the cracks. I took up small jobs here and there along the way, first I worked with the mentally and physically handicapped, then I worked in a small restaurant until I found my second calling; a telemarketer. My first telemarketing job was selling Craftmatic beds and then it was on to credit cards and memberships before we moved to Sault Ste Marie, On. for a safe place to raise our kids. There I found NuComm and launched a five year career as a telemarketer/customer service rep. Last year I started working on 'Misery's Companion' in my spare time, but with work, kids and a husband, the time was quite limited. After years of sitting at a desk, answering calls and assisting clients I finally threw the hat in and NuComm and I parted ways leaving me ample time to work on 'Misery's Companion'. Three months ago I wrote the last word, ending my year long commitment to the book, it was a sad day, but the beginning of a long road I knew I had to continue on and now months later 'Misery's Companion' has been put to print. After being a former high school drop out, teen mom and telemarketer, I finally achieved a dream I had had since I was 8, I wrote a book and had it published. Every word I wrote, I felt in my heart, everything my characters went through in my book, I went through and I can only hope that everyone who reads 'Misery's Companion' will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Birth Place
Windsor, On.,  Canada
Additional Information

Currently I am working on the sequel to Misery's Companion, it is also a suspense novel entitled 'Tools of Terror'. If all goes well it should be out in 2007.
