So who am I? I like to be vague in my stories, and about myself. Honestly telling people who I am is painful, I’d rather eat paint chips.
All I will say about myself, is that I am from the frozen prairies of Canada. I now live between the Canadian Napa Valley (heaven on earth) and lower mainland (metropolitan traffic hell).
I'm 37 and I have 5 children, aged 21, 11, 9, 5 & 3, and I love every second of it.
I own 4 small businesses, yes 4, all completely different, and I love them all like my babies. I also volunteer overnight at a homeless shelter at least once a week.
So you are probably wondering when I have time to write? I write when most normal people are doing that thing called sleep, I will get around to that someday.
Most people write because they have a good idea, or good story to tell.... I have neither, or maybe both, you decide. I write because I am absolutely obsessed with it, and with staying sane.
My life is like Robert Frost poem, “the road not taken”, except I took neither path. I made my own path right through the forest, and I have the scars to prove it.

I would have liked this more if it were not written in the present tense. Present tense is for radio and movies, meaning its happening NOW as you watch or listen to it. Written things can not happen NOW. They have to have happened THEN for you to be able to write about them, meaning they're past tense. Other than that nitpick it was okay.
