"You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you."

John Bunyan

Thank you to all you wonderful people who read my books and to whom I offer my sincerest apology for the delay in the publishing and sales of my new novels. Due to some family health issues, I was forced to put my writing on hold and am currently running about 24 months behind schedule. However, I am now back at my computer and able to put my creative juices to work again and will begin the process of putting words to paper. I promise you there are a lot more novels and exciting characters to come. Thank you for your patience and I'll look forward to seeing some of you at book signings and events in 2017. Please take note that, with proper notice, I am willing to speak to your groups about the creative writing process, hold small workshops, or meet with your writing/reading groups and answer questions. I also enjoy reading some of my short story collection at seniors' residences.

​​SOMETHING NEW

For the past few years I have been masquerading as a playwright. 

Let me explain. Heather Brophy from the Valleyview Little Animal Farm

in Richmond, Ontario heard I was a writer and asked me to write  some new plays for their puppet shows. Since I'm a writer of full length fiction novels, my first instinct was to refuse. However, I'm always open to jumping outside of my comfortable little box, so I accepted.

I wrote two plays a few years ago which seemed to be received well by their preschool and young school age viewers so Heather asked me for more. I obliged and finished my third one this past spring.

I recently went to view it and was pleasantly surprised  by youngsters dancing to the "rap" and mothers taking pictures of the puppets on stage. I was so thrilled, I am already planning the story line for my next play. 


The one that just started its run is called The Dragon Who Couldn't. ​ As the title implies he couldn't do anything dragons are supposed to do but somehow found himself plunked in the middle of a farmyard.

He certainly knew how to get lost.

The animals have not seen a dragon before and are eager to hear his story. Can the cows, pigs and alpacas help him?  Will he ever get home again? Why not bring your little ones, your grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or a neighbour's child and find out? 

The place is 

The Valleyview Little Animal Farm.
