I'm married to a loving, hard-working man who is my soul-mate and the most important person in my life. We have a dog, LYRIC, and 4 cats - CHELSEA, PIXIE, KAYA, and MANDY. My immediate family is made up of my husband, my sister, my 2 nieces and my 2 great-nieces. I have 4 step-children, 5 step-grandchildren, and 2 step-great-grandchildren. My parents were responsible for introducing me to Music, Books, and Gardens, and for that I am eternally grateful. Dad was a farm boy and then a Sergeant in the Royal Canadian Air Force during WW2 and while overseas, met and fell in love with my Mum, an educated English girl living with her family in London at the time. Unfortunately, my Dad died when I was 12, but I was lucky enough to have my Mum till just before her 90th birthday.
I love animals, and I can't stand the thought of any creature having to suffer. I have been passionate about music and singing my whole life. I am a writer by career choice, as well as an editor and proof-reader. I am a reader of many books, favoring biographies and Historical fiction. Some other things I enjoy are cooking, gardening, movies, trivia, collecting, art appreciation, artistic and creative projects, nature and history. I am a thinker - analytical and cynical, but I couldn't live without Music, Humor and Beauty in my life. I appreciate compassion and kindness.
My first children's book to be published is titled KESSA AND THE SPIDER (readers aged 4 to 8)...and is available at this link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PB0AOJ6.
My 2nd book is titled KAILEY AND THE KITTENS (readers 8 to 12) and is available at this link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01B2GMUAI
