Working on the new series!
The new profile picture shows me at the entrance to Xibalba, the Mayan Underworld. Trent and I went to Belize to research places and experiences for my new novel, Synergy 2012:Return to Magic. It is an urban fantasy.

I live in my dream house on 60 acres with an amazing view of the city skyline in one direction and the sheer cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment in the other. I was only able to start writing after checking off most other things on the to-do list of my life: marry high school sweetheart (check); get an awesome career as a high school teacher(check); have four wonderful kids (check); build my dream home (check); be a successful entrepreneur (check); breed Canada's top winning bulldog (check); get a herd of horses (check). Suddenly, I found myself inspired to begin writing after a break of more than twenty years - when I was in high school I wrote short stories which never made it past my journal binders. I still have both.
