Welcome to my website. Thanks for visiting. My wish is that you enjoy all of my books. I've received a diploma in "Short Story and Fiction Writing." Following this, I completed three levels of a creative-writing course. I currently belong to a writing group and have my work critiqued on a regular basis. I grew up in Port Stanley, Ontario, the eldest of six children. And met my first husband in high school, moved to St. Thomas and had two daughters. Many years later I gained two stepsons when I married my current husband. We have nine grandchildren. Harold and I now live near the village of Bayfield. Aside from working in manufacturing , I have worked in retail and a garden center. Now, I spend a lot of time devoted to gardening, reading, and writing.
I am proud of my Honor series which features Mitch Wilder as a womanizer. Each book reveals more of his secrets. You will meet his wives, mistresses and the hookers he frequents. Everyone in his hometown is affected by his actions. Including the son everyone knows is his. There is also the first murder in centuries. His step-brother moves into town, too close to the one woman Mitch can't do without. No Honor Between Brothers, Abandoned Honor, and Restless Honor is just the beginning. No Honor Between Brothers introduces you to Mitch Wilder, a lying, cheating womanizer and the woman who is in love with him. Abandoned Honor reveals more of Mitch's secrets. One is his son Mark, who has secrets of his own. Restless Honor shows the worst in a human being, and the best.

His father’s will states that Mitch has inherited the shipping company, which Mitch has been running for eight years, ever since his father retired. But up until then the company had remained in his father’s name. While the inheritance isn’t a surprise, the stipulation that Mitch must hire his stepbrother, Tom Fleming, is. On top of this, Tom will own half the company within five years. If this doesn’t happen the company will be sold and the proceeds will go to charity. Mitch sees no choice but to hire his brother.
