A friggin’ lucky British Columbian, I’ve landed a new gig hosting an ONLINE radio show called “About the Peninsula” on RadioSidney. It’s an entertaining, half-hour interview program showcasing the fascinating people on Saanich Peninsula.

You may listen live to “About the Peninsula“ on Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays by clicking the PLAY button at 7pm PST @ RADIOSIDNEY.

Also, you may always immediately hear past episodes by listening to my ABOUT THE PENINSULA podcast. Just click on an episode.

I also chat with book folks, discovering practical tips for fiction writers, on my podcast THE NOVEL EXPERIENCE, hosted by

I also create wildly colourful and textured mixed-media paintings, write mystery and women's fiction, and how-to ebooks on mystery writing and gardening.

For a larger portfolio of my art, just click on the + sign on the last photo icon. To see / buy some of my textured paintings, please visit THE OLD ATTIC in Saanichton, BC.

In addition, I sell funky digital images of my art online (via REDBUBBLE) on T-shirts, phone/tablet cases, home decor, art prints, clocks and greeting cards. How cool is that?

Most of the time, truth be told, I grow blooms and bamboo, indulge in chocolate fudge and have a blast playing old timer’s hockey and biking the sea-kissed rural roads of my small oceanside town on southern Vancouver Island.

I'm the author of HEARTSONG and HOMEFIRES, the first two books in my new women's fiction series, the Sisterhood of Shepherds.

I've also penned two stand-alone mysteries (TEED OFF! and A HEMORRHAGING OF SOULS), a how-to-write a mystery (YOUDUNIT WHODUNIT) and six inspirational cozies from the CHURCH CHOIR MYSTERY series. All my books are available on Amazon.

Several years ago, I had a blast co-creating QUILLR®, a new multimedia storytelling platform. The first QUILLR® is my controversial suspense thriller UNNATURALSTATES.
