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 a board member for many of those years, President from 2007-2009, and in June of 2017, I was voted in as President again. I am thrilled and honoured that I get to represent this wonderful group of writers.
I am also the Social Media/Newsletter person and love the fabulous workshops and great friendships in ARWA. Check out our website to see our upcoming workshops, meet some of our members, and find some information on the craft.
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.
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.
