Hey there (Yes, that is how we speak in Atlantic Canada. You also can't see me waving and holding a Tim's coffee or a cold tin can of Pepsi.)

I was born and raised in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. (It's on the shore of the Bay of Fundy. Beautiful rocky beaches where I had corn boils and fried hot dogs over a camp fire as a kid. The fog when it comes in is so thick you can't see your fingers in front of your eyes. Where most of my neighbours were cousins or married to family. Where I first learned about life and sadly death. Where I met the love of my life for 47 years. Great place what more can I say.)

I fell in love with the written word and story telling early in life. My older sisters would read aloud 20th century poems to me to prep

Thank you for asking Rebecca.

I do have a plot plan - and yes there were perhaps too many characters at the first of the book. That being said, this is book one is my series and I wanted to introduce characters that would be in the other novels.
I fell in love with most of my characters and I didn't think that Seth would nominate the story the way he did. Crafty little devil, isn't he?(less)

Growing up in the 50's and 60's before cable and the internet we were entertained by being read to. I knew and could recite 20st century poems before I was in grade four. History was my first love and I read anything I could find on European royalty / wars and the US civil war.

I noticed that there was little to read about Canadian History that wasn't boring.
So I took a chance and after retiring started to write about Canadian History (Saint John my home town mostly) and used my second love - Suspense - thrillers to make it interesting. My second novel - One for Sorrow will be before Canada's Confederation.
I have been doing a great deal of research .... did you know that Benedict Arnold lived in Saint John before traders kicked him out for not paying his bills.

I also love Dickens, Elizabeth Goudge and Stephen King...
