One of my first memories was writing on an antique typewriter. I only regret it took me this long to get serious about it.

But now the stories just pour out of me, making new ideas my worst enemy. I write urban YA, urban fantasy and high fantasy. Some have called it "feminist fantasy" because my lead characters are women.
I don't deny a streak of "I can do this myself" feminism, but the stories are so much more than their political leanings.
Elves, genocide, magic, true love, alternate realities, banshees, vampires, serial killers.... Who could ask for more?

I live on a small hobby farm in Ontario, with the love of my life and a 24lb behemoth named Yeti. Rumour is, he's a white cat.

All of the above, really.

10 things I learned in Hawaii!

My hubby and I just returned from a week in the land of coconut and pineapple everything. And I loved it! Except for the humidity! You should have seen my hair!


And mangoes squished on the sidewalk like fall apples. Broke my heart!


But, off to the 10 things I learned.



Guava tastes of nothing. Sweet but no flavour, very disappointing.
