Iím delighted you are visiting my web page. Having been in this writing business for over three decades, I have, by luck and hard work, had books published in a variety of genres.

Early publications include a story book in verse, picture books and plays for children. More recent books include my debut literary novel, two juvenile time-travel novels, a poetry collection (currently out to publishers) and a novella short-listed in Quattro Books 2014 Novella Competition.

Debut Novel

That Summer in Franklin

"This emotionally-charged novel has been compared to the work of Margaret Laurence and Maeve Binchy." Open Book Ontario

ďA surprisingly upbeat novel as much about reunions as losses. Meticulously researched. Filled with accumulated wisdom, compassion and humour." The Globe and Mail

A grand adventure story with winsome characters, sure to capture the fancy of young readers. The author does an impressive job of bringing to life the world of Germany in the 1400's, and of highlighting how vastly different the daily lives of the people were from what we know today. I wholeheartedly enjoyed this book and can picture many young people being equally absorbed by it. Canadian Materials
