Welcome to my website.
I grew up in southeast England; in a mining village my husband calls “The place that time forgot” (click on ‘Articles’ and read, ‘A Lady In Her Own Standing’ and you’ll understand why). I came to Canada when I was 21, in search of adventure and a new life. I live in Spruce Grove, Alberta with my hockey crazy husband, Ted, our lazy cat, Sammy and our adorable Sheltie, Maggie Mae. Our children, Matt and Katie, are the gems in my treasure chest.

“She shuffled lethargically to the side of the tub, lifted her leg and proceeded to climb inside. Still cemented in the water, I bit down on my lip, tucked my feet under my bum and slid back, as far as I could. Her unearthly body sat motionless at the other end of the tub, her eyes stared unblinking, not at me but through me. My body was numb with fear and I wanted desperately to cry out but my voice was still mute. Suddenly her eyes moved to meet mine.”
