After three decades as a financial journalist, I succumbed to my real passion—writing fiction. When not hunched over my computer conversing with people who exist only in my head, I spend my time trying to tame an unruly half-acre garden and a mischievous Jack Russell-cross. I also share my southern Ontario home with three rescue cats and an overactive Netflix account.

I write The Ruby Danger series of financial thrillers, and a cozy mystery series, The Leafy Hollow Mysteries. The Ruby books reflect my interest in fraud and how it ruins lives, while the Leafy Hollow volumes are more light-hearted. I hope you enjoy them.

But recently I've been intrigued by Jodi Taylor's wonderful (and hilarious) time-travel series, The Chronicles of St. Mary's, and the relationship between her heroine Madeline Maxwell ("Max") and Leon Farrell. Their love transcends the space-time continuum. Hard to beat that!(less)

“changed my life. Telemarketer, I thought, burying my head in the pillow with a groan. But in my family, a phone ringing in the middle of the night always signaled disaster. So I was genetically wired to jab that loudspeaker icon and croak, “Hello?” “There’s been an accident. Your aunt is missing.” “Who?”
Rickie Blair, From Garden To Grave

“My aunt brushed wilted chrysanthemums from her face and spit out a spray of baby’s breath.”

Adam Levin, The Instructions

Robert A. Heinlein
