What About Me?
“I am inspired, intrigued, and proud of our history in western Canada. More so, I’m delighted to tell you stories about it.”
Thank you for your interest in my work and learning about what inspires me.
I began my writing career in radio and telecommunications in 1995. I have written and produced radio plays, newsletters, short stories, blogs, and have published two novels.
As a British Columbian, I feel connected to the past that includes famous accounts of gold seekers, explorers, and First Nations folk who have created the perfect template to write historical fiction set in my home province.
I am also a voice artist with over twenty-five years of voice-work experience, producing and mixing my own audiobooks and audio dramas, copy, and narration. I freelance soft-to-medium sell reads, character voices, singing, several accents, and mimicking.
To know more about me personally:
"What kind of wedding ring do you want? Gold...with diamonds?" he asked.
"No," she replied. "I want a ring made from wood...and carved by you."
What seems like a riddle is actually my life. I married a native Mowachaht career master carver. Not long after we met, he began to tease me with the idea of a marriage. He asked me this question to legitimately get an idea of what my taste in jewellery was. When I told him I wanted a carved, wooden ring created by him, he told me: "You know I love you, but if that's what you really want, then I'm really in love with you now." He began carving what would be my original engagement ring: two humans bound with abalone on yew wood. The abalone represents eternity, the yew embodies strength, and of course, the humans symbolize the two of us.
