Author and Freelance Copy-editor
I live on Vancouver Island where I work as an author and freelance copy-editor. My articles on coastal life are published in Canadian magazines. For short stories and anecdotes, visit my blog. Click here.
My novels involve relationships that develop in unusual settings, on the wild and remote coast of British Columbia, in the primitive camping conditions of Mexico's Baja peninsula, and most recently in postwar Europe and northern British Columbia. My aim is to have the reader still thinking about these people and places long after they close the covers of the books.

While camping in the exotic landscape of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, Kevin and Sylvia, both on the run from abusive relationships, meet and fall in love. Two things stand in the way of their happiness. One—the secrets they keep from each other. Two—their abusers hunting them down. Will fear drive them apart or will passion and trust surmount the violence and hostility they have endured?
