A Bit About Me...
I have been writing for as long as I can remember! I have always written stories and poetry. An avid reader since I was a young child, I was always drawn to the written word and how a simple sentence could take you to another reality.
I have been a member of the Alberta Romance Writers Association since 2000 and have found a great community of writers there!! The name is slightly deceptive, as not all members are romance writers - we have childrens authors, screenplay writers, YA, mystery writers, sci-fi writers - the list goes on - and all are incredible writers!
Please go check out www.albertaromancewriters.com - fantastic group! We are also on Twitter at @ARWAalberta and have a Facebook page - Alberta Romance Writers' Association (ARWA).
I have been an ARWA board member, and was President for two years. I am back on the board this year as Social Media/Newsletter person for Alberta Romance Writers' Association and love the fabulous workshops and great friendships in ARWA.
I have a two great artistic passions in my life - belly dancing and writing. Both feed my need for creativity, emotion, and pretending I'm in another realm. Dancing and writing bring out emotions I don't even realize I had!!!
My fabulous husband and I welcomed into our lives in September of 2012 our wonderful and beautiful son - who we adore beyond words. We live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Because it's now 2017, I have re-designed my website and made the decision to simply keep my butt in the chair and write.
I thought with a new website look, it would inspire me to finish my current writing projects.
I am also a twin, which let me tell you, gives me some FANTASTIC stories I can use in my writing. She is my best friend and confidante. We are also very close to our mother and we all see each other numerous times a week. Family is very important, and it happens to work out FABULOUSLY when you can use your dysfunctional stories in your writing!
I welcome your emails with any questions or thoughts you may have on writing!
