Born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada in 1969 to my amazing parents, Barry and Sandra. I have one sibling, Russell. We grew up in the town of Tecumseh, Ontario. We climbed cherry trees, rode dirt bikes in the fields, caught crayfish in the ditches. Basically, we spent most of our time outside exploring the world.
I went to school in Belle River, Ontario, graduating in 1987. I went on to college but chose to drop out. Looking back now I wish I would have stuck to it. I married the love of my life, Shane, in 1991. Shortly after, we had two children. Our daughter, Mandy, created the covers to the 'Colours In Blackness' series. She is a graduate from Fanshawe College with an advanced diploma for Fine Art. Our son, Dustin, created the ColoursInBlackness.com website and helped out with all my other computer needs. He's quite savvy with electronics.
These five Colours In Blackness books, as well as A Bed Of Blood, are self published. I am interested in qualified representation: publishing company or agent.
Because I have Fibromyalgia, sometimes keeping focus is very difficult. Writing these stories is an accomplishment that I am very proud of. However, I couldn't have accomplished any of this without the aide from several friends and family, but mostly from my mother. She let me bounce ideas off of her and helped me out when I'd fall into creative slumps.
Please enjoy my words. I love all of characters and will forever hold them near and dear to my heart. Feel free to post your comments on my website.

X-Men go to high school
The first book in this series introduces the main character, Laura, and the friends she makes in the hospital/school that is studying their special talents. It's got elements of X-Men and elements of high school mixed together, told from the first person point of view of a teenager. There are mysteries about the cause of the students' special gifts, and what happened to a missing girl. Laura meets two hunky guys and must choose between them (a problem any teenage girl would like). She also faces normal teenage stress about meeting new friends, mixed with worry about the violent visions she experiences.
As an adult, I'm more removed from the teenage scene, but I'm sure teenage girls will identify with the heroine and appreciate her feelings and worries. Since this is the first book in the series, readers get to know the characters and might want to follow them through more adventures.
