I'm a Canadian, and live near Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, with my husband.
I think I was born reading. By the time I was in grade four the librarian had me reading books and doing book reports so she could classify the books for the higher grades.
I started writing my first book when I was 23 and actually got the first chapter written. For some reason I thought that if you had a good idea for a book, then sat down and started writing it, the story would just flow out. Boy, did I get a surprise!
When I was 49 I decided that if I had an ambition to write, then I better get serious about it. While taking a writing class with the University of Winnipeg I was asked if I wanted to help an older gentleman with his memoirs. That was the beginning of a wonderful relationship with Hungarian author, Alex Domokos. We co-authored several books together. He joked that he gives me the bones and I supply the flesh and blood.

Our ebooks included "The Price of Freedom", "Masquerade" and "Prometheus". We also collaborated on a collection of Christian short stories entitled "Ten Chocolates From the Box". "The Price of Freedom" is available as an audio book. We also have a book in print! "Body Traffic", an RCMP mystery story set in Winnipeg is available at all bookstores.
As a sole author I have written three books on bullying -- "The Bully", "Bullying: A Parent's Primer" and "Why Me?". "The Bully" is also available in print. My anti-bully website is located at: thebullybook.com
My short stories have been published in "Western Producer", "A Cup of Comfort for Christmas", "Winnipeg Parent", "Zygote" and "Mysterical-e", "Columbia" and "Green Prints".
