My Books

I am a multi- genre writer.  Like we have character actors, I am a “character” writer.  I try to use  different genres to convey themes and ideas. There is no formula to my work, but there is a consistent style and voice.

I believe art has power. Power to engage. To allow the participant a safe space to explore outside their comfort zone. Visual art explodes colour and shape into our experience.  Written words are fireworks of ideas, allowing the reader to create their own visuals. There is a safety valve here, because the reader creates the visual they can handle.  But the message is equally potent to all. Art permeates who we are, expanding conversations, empowering. I am honoured to be an artist of words.

 Dramatic realistic genre fiction embraces my first two novels.  I am collaborating on a young adult fantasy work (coming soon), and a Thriller of my own (also coming soon).  But first, the release of my new cocreated non-fiction series on the grief experience Remember, It’s OK.
