Author, Editor, Ghostwriter
I was born very premature and have lived with Cerebral Palsy my entire life. I faced every form of abuse possible growing up, as well as discrimination and persecution, most of which stemmed from ignorance, misconceptions, and fear of my disability.
I fell in love with books the moment I was introduced to the school library when I was six years old! I was eight when I wrote the first five chapters of a sci-fi story on yellow lined paper. At thirteen, I began writing poetry as a way of expressing and processing my emotions. As an adult, I earned two certificates from The Institute of Children’s Literature, and I focused on writing short stories for Teens and YA magazines in the 1990s.
I have non-fiction articles published on The Mighty. I’m an Editor and Writer for Coffee House Writers with many short stories, serial stories, and poems published on their online site. I have five entries published in Coffee House Writers 2 Anthologies (Dec. 2020); I’m a Co-author in The Survivor Memoirs: Childhood Sexual Abuse (Feb.2021); I’m an Amazon Best Selling Co-author in the Called To Intercede Anthologies – Volume 1 (Jan. 2022), & Volume 7 (Feb. 2022).
My first Contemporary Christian fiction novel will be published in 2022, date TBA. I also have a 30-Day Trust Journal that I am working on, as well as compiling my poetry into a book for God’s glory.
Writing is a way for me to tell my stories and share my experiences so my voice is heard. As a Ghostwriter, I get to partner with Holy Spirit, to help others share their unique stories.
I help women who have been through similar experiences to find healing and wholeness, and my writing plays a part in that as well. I’ve been a follower of Jesus Christ for 38 years and counting.
Outside of writing, I love reading, crocheting, and attending church activities. I live with my husband and cat, Willow, in a small town in southwestern Saskatchewan, Canada.
