I have led a very active life filled with travel. As a young teenager, I accompanied another family and observed the snake charmer in Marrakech, Morocco, rode a camel and have nurtured a monkey in the Canary Islands. Seeing the world has been my life’s passion. My parents underwent a bankruptcy in my late teens and in spite of that, I have still managed to see quite a bit of the world. My most exciting moment was walking over a rickety wooden bridge with alligators navigating their way below – hoping I would make one misstep. I survived the Hana Trail on Maui, walked on a beach in France, hiked in Cinques Terre, Italy, and many of our Ontario trails - the Bruce Trail from Tobermory over to Owen Sound and further south to Hamilton and the Lightfoot Trail in Orillia. Canoeing and portaging in Algonquin Park has been by far the most physical hike of all and oh so beautiful with the reward at day's end of sparkling stars against the backdrop of the blackest night sky. Snakes, bears, moose and deer have been our bedfellows on many of these hikes in the Spring and Fall. I am a proud Canadian. I lived most of my life in Sarnia, Ontario, with the exception of attending The University of Western Ontario and have recently moved to Orillia, Ontario, Stephen Leacock’s former summer hometown. I am an Information Specialist who loves to research pet projects.
I have had a taste of my stories in print in The Big Book of Canadian Hauntings, compiled by Canada's Master Gatherer Mr. John Robert Colombo, Dundurn Press, c2009 and my first novel Wake Me Up Inside. It is number one in a series and I am working hard on the second installment.
