I was born in Montreal, Quebec but now live in Southern Ontario with my husband. I’ve raised two kids, mothered three dogs, and herded a few cats. Other than that, my life was fairly routine until I hit the age of 50. Some women get tattoos. I decided to write a book. A little tardy, but then again, Mum always said I was a late bloomer.

“Life is about juggling obligations, Valerie. You need to study smarter, not harder.

Great. What did that even mean? If I could study smarter, wouldn't I be doing it already?”
Leigh Evans, The Trouble With Fate

“Don't you want to survive?
This was a trick question.”
Leigh Evans, The Trouble With Fate

“The odds of her being crafty enough to get out of this were just about as good as a hamster seeing a shiny new wheel and choosing not to run.”
Leigh Evans, The Trouble With Fate
