About Me

I'm a middle grade writer originally from Canada, now living in New Jersey. My multi-cultural adventure MG novel, ADVENTURE ON NEMESIS MOUNTAIN, is now available on Amazon.

My children have been the inspiration behind many of my short stories, over 40 in total. One of my short stories, Paradoxical Neighbor, has been published by Nelson Education in a book for 10th graders, NELSON LITERACY 10. My shortest story, Secret Mission, has only 97 words. Both of these flash fiction stories and several more are featured here.

My Services
I review MG novels on this blog. Click on the link for my reviewing policy and contact information.

I'm offering proofreading services at a courtesy price for all MG writers (especially targeting self-published authors) who need a second pair of eyes to catch any mistakes before publication.

I'm also the moderator of a MG/YA online critique group offering advice and support through detailed reviews and mentoring new and published writers.

My Sites
I'm a member of SCBWI, writing.com, Squidoo, and you can sometimes find me on WriteOnCon. I'm also on Goodreads and Twitter.

Personal Information
Here are some pictures of Me Throughout the Years (that lion head picture is a bit embarrassing... *cringe*).

I live with my husband, our three children, a very independent cat called Tiger, and a Schipperke (skip-per-key) - a little black furry dog with no tail that looks like a bear - called Shadow (which you can see on this post).
