Hello and welcome. 🙂 I’m the author of the contemporary novel, A White Rose, and the fictional short stories, The Jaguar (a fable), Belly of the Whale (fantasy), Garrin (paranormal), and The April Sherman Series (contemporary).
I’m a stay-at-home mom and bookworm – born and raised in the gorgeous province of Ontario, Canada. My passions are philosophy, psychology, and history, not necessarily in that order. 😉 I mostly write fiction but blog about my various Christian musings as well. Labels don’t leave much room for nuance, but you might call me a left-leaning conservative, or simply a moderate.
After finishing A White Rose, I co-wrote a fantasy novel called The Attic (click here for an excerpt). Since then I’ve been working on a contemporary romance novel which I plan to release on Amazon this summer (2017). It takes place in balmy Bermuda – that quaint British colony island in the North Atlantic ocean. (Hubby and I went there for our honeymoon fifteen years ago.)
I recently recorded an audio version of my ghost story Garrin, complete with music and sound effects. It was produced by my husband, Robbie Ferguson, who’s the founder and host of Category5 Technology TV. One by one, we plan to do the same for each of my short stories. So if you’re on a bus or train and would like to listen to a short story rather than read – give it a try. 🙂
I’ve recently begun a new “coming of age” short story collection called The April Sherman Series, which follows the misadventures and discombobulations of a young girl growing up in a small town, fundamentalist Christian family. These stories are intended to be ironic and thought-provoking; they’re not a critique of Christianity in general but of harmful dogma. Some of the stories will explore the absurdist/nihilist worldview as well.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
