I write to enable others to discover who they were born to be. Don't we all seek to be the people we were meant to be? Through fiction and non-fiction I seek to inspire others to seek out their personal freedom and to live in the freedom Christ died to give to us.
I have walked with Christ for 30 years. Sometimes He's been in front of me, sometimes next to me. If you’re like me, you’ve often rushed ahead of him; yet, he has been ever-patient.
I began my career as a drama teacher, but hungry for personal and professional growth, God gave me room to explore acting, where I discovered the depth to my personality I never knew existed. I moved from my home in Canada to NYC and then to London, England. There, I was surprised to find my husband, who has been a rock of faith and commitment to our LORD.
My personal journey has been both an emotional and a spiritual one. I have grown out of my willful insecurity to become a spokesperson for self-esteem and spiritual growth, because the depth and significance of God's sovereignty and grace has come alive for me. He’s enabled me to grow beyond my own narrow self-concept, toward my potential to be the person He created me to be. In 2000 I received His call to write, where I have found vocational fulfillment. I’ve been personally surprised, protected and invigorated! Now, I challenge all of us to ask, "Am I fulfilled? Am I walking in freedom and the call God has for me?” For those who answer 'I am not', FREE TO BE has been written with you in mind, to steer you in the direction of freedom and fulfillment. This book is about living and moving in the completeness and wholeness that Jesus has given us, to be totally transformed into the person God created us to be... so that we can do the things we've been created to do.
Everything I write is about identity and purpose – about being and becoming the unique persons we have been created to be, in order to do that which we have been created to do. It is my goal to encourage each of us to accept who we are, joyful and ready to celebrate who God has made us to be. It is my desire that all of us will be free to be precisely the people we’ve been created to be.
I have returned to my homeland of Canada, to publish FREE TO BE, THE FAITHFUL PRINCE, and BUILDING COMMUNITY, with more to follow. I live with my husband and nine-year-old son on the sparkling shores of Lake Ontario.
