This is where I introduce myself and tell you a bit about the
person behind the stories. I'm
a Toronto native—born
and raised in
'the Beach' district—and
like so many in this city, I feel an almost mystic connection
to Lake Ontario and its miles of boardwalk. These days,
home is a west Toronto condo
an opinionated miniature parrot and
his companion cat.
stories for as long as I can remember—a
habit that occasionally got me in trouble when I was a kid! But
until the winter of '93, I'd never considered writing an entire
winter, I was possessed by a couple of characters
who would not give me peace until I'd told their story. It took
two and a half years to complete that first book and while it will

Several years later, I teamed up with my friend Anne Norman and
together we wrote two novels, Rock

Focus, both originally published by Avalon Books in their Career Romance line.
first solo release is Sparks
Fly, a forest fire adventure/romance
set in Ontario's far north. It was an exciting story to research and
tell and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have.
Anne and I are delighted to announce that Amazon Publishing has acquired Avalon books and made our titles available in hardcover and for Kindle under their Montlake imprint. Check out the book pages for purchase links.
