Biography

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.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is about a young man, who lived very selfishly and never cared for anything.
He discovers he has a terminal disease, and will die.

So the story behind my latest book is true love, in despite of time, illness and circumstance.... the true irony of life, is to share 'The Seed of Charity'.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love freedom! I hate the idea of having to write something for someone else.
I'd rather write whatever the f*ck, whenever the f*ck, and exactly what the f*ck was on my mine.

Sorry for all the f*cks... for f*cks sakes.
