About Me, Contact Info
I write mythological fiction. My current project, Antigone: The True Story, takes place in ancient Greece and is scheduled to be published in the fall. Antigone made it to the quarter finals of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award in 2013. My next novel, Fatal, about Clytemnestra (Helen of Troy's sister) is in the works.
I have a passion for books, and have had for as long as I can remember, and fit reading and writing in whenever I can. I have a soft spot for mythology, especially ancient Greek, even studying it in university.
In fact, anything creative stimulates me. I also write some poetry and do some photography. The extent of my drawing is stick figures, but I am working on that. The novels I have written were done initially as part of National Novel Writing Month, where you commit to writing a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. This has been so much fun for me and is definitely my way to write. My kids have also joined in and love setting their goals and working towards them.
I live in BC, Canada with my husband, three beautiful kids, and two cats.
