I am an author, freelance writer, editor, and social media consultant. I love to teach and mentor other writers and authors.

Background Information

I began my career as a public relations professional in 1990 and in 2007 decided to go freelance. I started providing freelance writing services, corporate communications training, writing workshops/retreats and social media strategy. I had moved to Dubai in 2007, which was what triggered my career transition. I was inspired by friends and colleagues at the same time to share my experiences with others and wrote my first book, @Home in Dubai...Getting Connected Online and on the Ground. More recently I published my first novel, Mental Pause, which won an Independent Publisher Book Award. I have also published a self-help eBook on Amazon called 10 Steps to a Successful PR Campaign - A Do-It-Yourself Guide for Authors. My second novel will be released at the end of 2014. I have more recently begun focusing on book editing & development and author mentoring (while continuing to write, of course!).

I have travelled all over the world and have been living as an expat since 1993. I grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia and attended Mount St. Vincent University and received a Bachelor of Public Relations.


- Fiction Writer's Platform Editor's Choice Award - The Power of Suggestion and And Truth be Told.
- NaNoWriMo 2011 winner

Additional Information

My first novel, Mental Pause, launched on March 8, 2013, International Women's Day was self-published. My first book, a non-fiction called @Home in Dubai... Getting Connected Online and on the Ground (Summertime Publishing) came out Dec 12, 2011.

Writing...Just Because
After 20 years in PR, I decided it was time to just write! Here's where I blog about what it's like to be a freelance writer, the process of becoming an author, what it's like to live as an expat and I do book reviews on these topics too.
