I began my writing career several years ago. I started out as most of us do – writing short stories. My first one was published in Woman’s World and I was thrilled! I have always found short stories frustrating to read because they just seem to get going and they’re over so I found them frustrating to write too. I was on to novels! In 2012, I started writing for Cozy Cat Press and thus began my Parson’s Cove cozy mystery series. Number six came out on April 1st. Meanwhile, I’ve had one historical fiction novel, Sarah’s Valley, and another cozy mystery, Virtual Enemies, self-published. My husband and I are retired and live in the same house we built over thirty five years ago. We have four children and four grandchildren. We live in Manitoba, Canada, and spent some of our winter in Galveston, Texas.
