I am a Mid-Michigan
resident who lives in beautiful Canadian Lakes. The setting provides peaceful
inspiration but often my characters are drawn from extensive travel throughout
the U.S. and Europe.
After twenty years
in the health care profession, I decided to pursue a long held dream to write
novels for publication. My main focus is on mysteries but my first success came
in women's fiction--Taking Rosie's Arm, which I recently reworked
as Autumn Rose, Book 1 of
MacIntosh Series. I frequently contribute to
Smashwords.com where you can find suspense, humor and good old
fashion romance with happy endings.
My creative outlet
has a few arms. Never one to shy away from multitasking, I am the Emerson chef,
Bar-B-Que meister and campfire tender. During some relaxed moments, I take up a
brush for painting acrylic ocean and nature scenes, still-life and whimsical
flowers. Take a look at What's on
Canvas to see the latest rendering.
Because of my
interest in nursing and the medical field, I serve as director of a
prescription assistance service. Along with several volunteers, I obtain
prescribed medications for individuals without prescription insurance or who
have fallen into the 'low income' bracket. This work is a very satisfying
I live by a lake
so my need for water is always filled..kayaking, paddle boarding or boating. I
also enjoy travel, playing with my grandson, and supporting worthwhile causes.

Run) Grand Rapids Color Run ..wa hoo...record time!
Of course, the
writer prevails, and there is always a work-in-progress as well as
reviews of other authors' work, mostly
in Crime and Suspense.
