Growing up in Ottawa, Canada, and doing some stints in other parts of the country before settling down near Perth, Ontario, I have had the great pleasure of meeting some wonderful and compelling people. Lovers and Friends is testimony to the great power that others have over us in life, and the people that have made the deepest and most lasting impressions on me over the years are presented here. Whether sad and tragic or happy and inspiring, the memories I've recorded are sure to set the reader's mind on to the characters that have enriched and informed them in her own life. Poetry and reality-based stories are included, in short volumes that are often fast-paced and always original. Read and enjoy!
