I’m drawn to the mysterious, speculative, legendary, and fantastical; especially in historical settings. I enjoy spooky, magical, thought-provoking stories and folklore.
Thus, I’ve made a shift in writing aspirations and am currently working on a fantasy novella – a project I’ve been daydreaming about for two years and have finally embarked upon. 😀 While my previous novels were Christian fiction, with the exception of The Attic (fantasy), this one is Youth Fiction and written for a mainstream audience.
It takes place in Ontario, Canada, late 1800s, and features British Home Children and the French-Canadian legend of the Loup-garou (a.k.a werewolf!).
I’ve begun a mini-series called Canadian Folklore & Ghost Stories which features re-tellings of legends from across the provinces. To augment the series for non-readers, my husband and I produce YouTube video versions of these same tales.
I also write short stories in a variety of genres (fantasy, speculative, paranormal, historical, coming of age).
My latest completed novel, When the Fog Cleared, is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle. It’s a romance that takes place in balmy Bermuda – that quaint British colony island in the North Atlantic ocean. (Hubby and I went there for our honeymoon eighteen years ago.)
I take great interest in nuance – seeking the overlooked, the subtle, the interesting angle – and catching it by the tail as it darts in and out between the obvious or the extreme. In other words, I like to catch nuance. Nuance is subtle and illusive; a jewel worth finding.
“He (the devil) always sends errors into the world in pairs – pairs of opposites… He relies on your extra dislike of one to draw you gradually into the opposite one. But do not let us be fooled. We have to keep our eyes on the goal and go straight through between both errors. We have no other concern than that with either of them.” ~ C.S. Lewis
Hopefully you’ll enjoy one or more of my stories, and if you do, I’d sure love to hear from you! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
