I was born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada and to this day I am still residing in this area. I grew up in a small town just outside of my birthplace.
I was fortunate enough to have married the love of my life. He's a very patient man indeed. Shortly after our marriage, we had two children. Our daughter who grew up to be an incredible artist. Then came our son who is my hero with technology.
I have Fibromyalgia and Porphyria which make it difficult to stay focused and driven at times. Writing these stories is an accomplishment that I am very proud of. I couldn't have succeeded without the aide of several friends and family members and for that I will be eternally grateful.
Please enjoy my stories. I love all of characters and will forever hold them near and dear to my heart. Feel free to post your comments here on Smashwords or on my website.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada. My book series, Colours In Blackness, is based in this town. When I first moved there from Windsor, Ontario, it was a tiny town with only one stop light. It grew and grew and now there are many stop lights. I felt a need to put Tecumseh on the map, so to speak. Besides, it's easier to write what you know.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Sure I do! It was the first book in this series - Colours In Blackness - A New Life. Before that, nothing. I'm one of those people who doesn't do just a little bit of anything. If I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it all the way.
While working with the Sheriff's deputy to solve her mother's brutal murder, eighteen year old Katie fears that the killer is someone she knows. Is her every move being watched to make sure she doesn't discover the truth? Will she get too close and fall into the snare of a sadistic psychopath? Just when you think you know who it is, the story twists.
In this plot twisting, fifth and final book in the series, Laura's questions are all answered.
Is the man she the sees truly the Laden she once knew, or is he a mere shadow of the eternal love she thought him to be? Will her love for Todd be strong enough to survive his jealousy or does it only prove to be the poison that ends them?
Will her trust in people prove to be her most fatal flaw?
