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

I write contemporary romance and uplifting women’s fiction–hopeful stories about women finding home, family and happy endings and finding themselves too.

My latest book, The Wishing Tree in Irish Falls, released in e-book in October 2019 with a paperback following in April 2020.

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 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.

Find out more about me under Meet Jen, read my blog (where I post every two weeks) or visit my Books and Photo Gallery pages for information about my writing and sources of inspiration.

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

I’d be pleased to hear from you at my contact page.
