I live on a small island just off a larger island off the coast of North America where I write romance, sci-fi, and fantasy/adventure for a wider audience.
What's my super power? I'm a storyteller, an entertainer. As you begin to read my words the stress of the day, nay, the stress of everyday, begins to magically fade away. Transported into another world, your worries and troubles are forgotten for a time as you share adventures with me and my friends. My art, my power is as old as humankind, for the magic of the storyteller has ever been with us and it will always be.
Okay, I'll confess, I've been busted. I was accused of once being a life coach and hiding some of those techniques in my books, disguised as adventure.
Guilty as charged. sigh.
I was also accused of lightly touching on a number of taboo subjects in my books, trying to shine a different light on things.
Guilty as charged again.
As a result of these transgressions, I have been labeled an underground writer.
Oh the shame of it all. (Hangs head and moves slowly towards penalty box.)
I am a spiritual seeker, dog trainer, official Reiki Master and Interior designer, who has turned her hand to writing. I am also an avid chess player, not a great one, but an avid one. I bake, I build, I knit, and I tell great stories.
I have roamed far and wide for over sixty years in this realm, and I have seen much; some I wish I had not, and a great deal that I would love to see again. Some days I feel like Bilbo Baggins, for I have been there and come back again.
No, I haven't written a book about my wanderings, at least not yet, but much I have experienced, observed, learned, surmised, or imagined, is woven into the tales I have written.
Folks, if you take the time to write a review for me, please leave me a way to contact you so I can thank you properly. If you prefer to remain anonymous, then let me thank you right now. Thanks!!

What happens when a woman who understands how love and a deep abiding friendship can overwhelm you and take your breath away puts pen to paper? When she chooses to show the world the depth of passion that results from two people putting each others' needs before their own? You get Prudence MacLeod and some of the most dynamic characters I have ever met.
Come meet Laurie Hibbs, in all his cantankerous, lonely, tender glory. He is a beautiful man and his family is one that we can all learn from. The lesson of the day is love, familial, neighborly, romantic, passionate, it is all love and this family leads by example.

Just loved this one. A compelling love story with sexy moments and real life family challenges combined with a good fairy tale. Compassion, honesty and an empowering story. Loved it.

I figure you took the time to write these novels, the least I can do is write my reviews for each of your stories.
The Ghost Piper was one of my favorite stories so far. I felt very happy and optimistic after finishing this novel. Learning the art of storytelling is certainly an accomplishment, but telling a story that truly inspires people to better themselves is a rare gift indeed. Thank you very much for the time and effort you put into this novel!
