I am new to the writing game, and even though The Canadian Highland is my first book, it most certainly will not be my last. I have taught middle school for a number of years, and my writing is for this audience. It's important that we bring history to life, and that is what I do every day in class. This book is simply an extension of my teaching style.
I have a little 3 year old, so getting time to write these days has been a challenge. Soon, however, I'll have a new book for readers with another strong female character. The feisty nature of my daughter is the inspiration I use to create characters who are resilient in the face of tremendous odds.
Ultimately, it's my hope that others can feel the passion and excitement in history by living it through the actions of those who experienced it first hand!
