Jana pictureLou keeping watchEver since I can remember, I've created stories in my head, sometimes about real people but more often about people I made up. It wasn't until I was in my thirties that I began to put my stories down on paper. I've been at it for nearly thirty years, although I wasn’t published in novel length fiction until 2007. Think of me as the poster child for perseverance!

In my life away from writing, I’m an accountant/admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to my husband Warren. I enjoy golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not necessarily in that order. My husband and I live in Winnipeg, Canada.

Our Pug/terrier cross Allu (Lou for short) passed away on January 3, 2020 at the ripe old age of seventeen. We miss her terribly, but we’ll always remember the fun we had with her and the joy she brought into our lives.

You can read about how we got our dog in a real life story I call A Dog Named Lou.
