Biography

Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. –Roald Dahl

I don’t remember the first time I said, “Let’s pretend ...” but life is definitely more fun when I start my day with those words.
I write romantic fiction with a little magic, a little suspense and a little humour. When you reach the end, I strive to leave you in a happy place.

I’ve always lived in my head where making up stories was a guilty pleasure. It wasn’t until I had my three children and completed a degree in psychology and professional writing that making up stories became the job I love.

Life is full of difficult times, so it’s important to me to write novels where happiness ultimately triumphs. I help my characters overcome their demons, so they learn to love themselves, open their hearts, and receive the love everyone deserves.

I’ve always been fascinated by the idea there’s more to our world than we perceive. That’s why I created Finn, a mischievous, match-making elf from a world just a wee bit off Earth, who believes every time love is experienced, energy empowers our worlds.
Find Finn playing games with humans and spreading the love in the Magical Matchmaker Series.

Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
For the most part, I discover new ebooks on Twitter or Facebook as well as the conferences I attend and from my fellow writers within the Toronto Romance Writers chapter of the RWA.
What is your writing process?
I start with a fairly extensive character profile. Character driven plots are my favourites. I love the character journey and start by figuring out how they will change and grow based on their back-story and the conflicts they must overcome. I like to work with an outline that gives me most of the plot points, and I've learned to just spew out the first draft with no edits or judgment. During the second draft, I figure out which story threads have enough weight to pull through the entire book, and I strengthen the inner journey of the characters. I share the third draft with my critique group whom I couldn't work without.

I have many moments where I think, man this is hard work!
