I married my sweetheart, Tim, in 2006. We’ve pulled through the roller coaster that is life, and still work on us. We both thrive on funny sitcoms, movies, and board games. Marriage is hard, but we grow together.
He’s my love, my partner, my friend,
my confidant.


I started writing stories as a child and began my first novel in grade nine. I’ve been writing ever since. One of my current book series is The Mer Archives. There’s more than twenty projects and novel series on the back burner. Safe to say, I’m in this writing thing for the long haul.


I am a proud mom to four adorable, smart kids. Everett is a teenager, Kaia is a preteen, Declan is a grade-schooler and little Xander tottles around at not quite two. They show me every day what unconditional love is. Guiding them through life is difficult and tiring, but oh so rewarding.
