About Me

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.

In the UK, and for women’s fiction, I’m represented by Kiran Kataria at Keane Kataria Literary Agency

In the US, and for romance, I’m represented by Dawn Dowdle at Blue Ridge Literary Agency

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