I'm a writer of middle-grade historical fantasy, unpublished, but working hard. Some day I'd like to be published, but that seems secondary to producing work I am proud of. Of course, for the last 25 years or so, I've been a 'wanna be' writer who kept putting life first and never finding the time to write. In 2006 I decided that at 46, I'd better get busy or I might run out of time. I have published one poem in 'The Leader', a Canadian magazine for Scouters, which was published in October 2006.

I lurk about on the Compuserve Books and Writers Forum, where I'm also a member of Private Kidcrit. I'm a CANSCAIP (Canadian Society of Children's Authors, Illustrators, and Performers) Friend, and attend meetings of the Toronto, ON Chapter. I'm also a member of the Canadian Children's Book Centre.

I'm married to 'Big Dave', my lover since 1977, and we have one son, David, who turns 15 in August 2008. Our furbaby is Baron, a 'Weimrador' (Black Lab/Weimaraner cross). He joined our family in December 2006, a little brother for Merlin (Airedale Terrier), who left us July 18, 2006 and waits at the Rainbow Bridge. We live in a cluttered-but-comfy semi-detached house in the 'burbs, with all the amenities including a treehouse and an overwhelmingly large garden. Life is Good.
