about me

Like the protagonist in one of my novels, I am a recovering lawyer.

In addition to my law degree, I hold an MFA in creative writing. I’m an active member of the Canada West chapter of Sisters in Crime, a collegial group of writers of mostly crime fiction, and Crime Writers of Canada.

For the most part, I write fiction (mysteries, both dark and light). Occasionally I’ll write a personal essay or review.

I live on the west coast of British Columbia, but was born and raised in Alberta and miss its wide blue skies terribly. If I had my way, I’d reshape geography and move the Alberta foothills and cattle country closer to my home.

I’m fascinated by the many absurdities of life, addicted to chocolate and caramel, crime fiction and mysteries, sunshine, white sand, weathered barns, foothills ranches and crisp fall air. I sing along with Willie Nelson, Ian Tyson, ZZ Top, Queen, and Bob Dylan.
