Winner of the 2011 NaNoWriMo after taking part in '07, '08, and '09. Came up a bit short in 2012 after a huge sprint (my problem was beginning one novel, then starting another, plus life got in the way).
I am a former radio broadcast journalist, former desktop publishing instructor, a production manager of a small West Central Saskatchewan weekly newspaper, and transitioning to work for a weekly newspaper in a small North East Saskatchewan city. I currently moved more north easterly, and am a production assistant in the city of Humboldt.
I write, and have an opinion (but then, we all do, I believe). I’m creative in that I enjoy writing, and I enjoy taking photographs. I’m not a professional photographer, but I feel there’s enjoyment in something as wonderful as a photo. I own no cats, but I’d like to (I live in an apartment, and there are rules against pets like cats and dogs in apartments, and I’m not a fish person). Plants die around me, unless I have a mother-in-laws tongue, which requires low maintenance and are quite good at cleaning the air.
The following is information about the three story properties I have been working on, two of which have been published works.

“Do you prefer a book that makes you laugh or makes you cry? One that teaches you something or one that distracts you?”
Wait, do you think those things are exclusive? That books can only be one or the other? I would rather read a book with all of those things in it: a laughing, crying, educating, distracting book. And I would like more than that, the kind of book where the pages groan under the weight of keeping all such opposites apart.”
