Thank you for visiting my website and sharing in my writing life

I write romance and women’s fiction–uplifting books with heart and hope–about women finding home, family and happy endings and finding themselves too.

I live with my husband, teen daughter and a floppy-eared hound in a small town in Eastern Ontario, Canada, although as a dual Canadian/British citizen also call England home.

I was a finalist for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s (RNA) Joan Hessayon Award in 2017 and Romance Writers of America’s (RWA®) Golden Heart® award in 2015. Amazon named my third book, Back Home at Firefly Lake, a ‘Best Book of the Month: Romance’ in December 2017.

I’m a member of the RNA and Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA).
