About the Author
Born inScotland, I emigrated to Canada at the tender age of seven. Years lateras a University of Toronto graduate, I convinced the federal governmentto hire a Fine Arts specialist as a computer programmer. After threeyears of bits, bytes, and dumps (probably not what you're thinking), Igraduated again, this time to full-time homemaker and mom, raising twowonderful sons. Plunging back into the business world, my second husband and I started a management consulting company. This marriage survivedbecause my husband and I pledged never to work on the same projectagain. Ever.
After a century in the consulting world, I grew weary of wearing snappy power suits, squeezing into panty hose, and fightingrush hour traffic. I made a life-changing decision. I wanted to writebooks. Not dry, boring, technical treatises, but fresh, funny romanticsuspense novels. How hard could it be? Thousands of authors did it every year.
Always an over-achiever, I quit my day job, attended aone-week seminar on writing a novel, read a couple of how-to books,joined the Ottawa chapter of RWA, and plunged right in. Learning can be a humbling experience, but I persevered. I slaved. I revised. I learned.After twenty-five rejections, countless workshops, six-re-writes, andtwo first-prize wins, my efforts finally paid off with the sale of myfirst book.
My husband and I live in Ottawa where I volunteer foran addiction family program, play bridge, bicycle, hike, square dance,read (naturally), and slave over my computer to improve my writingskills.
