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, YA, mystery, sci-fi, thriller and historical writers. The list goes on - and all are incredible writers!
I have been a board member for most of those years, was President from 2007-2009, and in June of 2017, I was voted in as President, and again for the 2018-2019 season. I am thrilled and honoured I get to represent this wonderful group of writers.
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 with our two black cats.
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 am a Virtual Assistant (Office Goddess) for a few authors and writers in Calgary. Helping with their administrative tasks and in some cases, editing manuscripts.
