I was born in Austria and at the age of five immigrated with my family to Canada, where we settled in Edmonton, Alberta. My love of words began early--I'm told I was rhyming them soon after I began to talk. With a crayon in my hand I first drew stories, with a pencil I wrote them. As for reading, I was the girl who always had her nose in a book, the one who read with a flashlight under the covers or, when the moon was full, would sit by a window for hours laughing, crying, loving characters whose adventurous lives wouldn't let her sleep.

The girl grew up, married one of the good guys, raised three great children, worked, laughed, lived, but never lost her need for creating stories about romance, adventure, passion, mystery, love... We now live in southwestern British Columbia where I'm able to indulge that need full time, plot, plan, and now share some of my work with you.
