My life has two parts: the first in Canada, where I grew up, and the second in Connecticut, where I live with three children, two doodles, and one husband. Both places feel like home, and in both I’ve been lucky enough to pursue my passion: story-telling. Maybe it all started one summer night as I sat by a camp bonfire, listening to a counselor tell The Monkey’s Paw… I was hooked.
Back in Toronto, I attended the Royal Conservatory of Music and the University of Toronto. I penned the travel column for a national newspaper before working in public relations, liaising with press, foreign diplomats, corporate investors and the public.
Since relocating to Connecticut I’ve been published in local and national media, both as a director at a strategic communications firm and as a freelance writer. My work has appeared in everything from websites to poetry journals.
In all this time I don’t think I’ve ever walked into a bookstore without aching, down to my very bones, to see a title of my own on the shelf. THE CRATE, a true crime/Holocaust story, is a lifelong dream come true. The dream continues with the publication of my first novel, a thriller/courtroom drama called A NEST OF SNAKES.
