I have been writing since I was in grade 3. It was then that I decided I wanted to write professionally. In the past I have entered numerous contests and submitted my work to many magazines. Currently I am working on a children's novel entitled "Ben and the Purple Men" and I am working on a few mystery and adventure pieces. I am originally from the West Coast of Newfoundland, Canada but I currently live on the Avalon Pinnensula in a small town called Torbay. My cultural background is a combination of Irish, French and some Native. Besides writing I am interested in reading, knitting and gardening. I hold a diploma in Paralegal Studies.
