My Story

I’ve been studying people and what makes them tick since the age of ten when I decided to become a figure skating coach. My fascination with the human soul only grew as I became a wife and mother. Professionally, I continued to enjoy engaging with people during my time as a direct sales rep, an executive recruiter then as co-founder of a recruitment firm. 

Faced with re-entering the workforce when my youngest was due to start school, I found it wasn’t in my heart to return to sales. From deep within I felt the urge to communicate with others through fiction instead, and in turn, discovered what I was born to do.

Relationships fascinate me. Marital, romantic, familial, professional—as long as they’re ripe with complexity and emotion—I’ll be writing them. I live in an idyllic Southern Ontario hamlet with my husband, sons and vegetable garden.
