New writer - Completed the Creative Writing program at the University of Calgary. Currently taking the Professional Writing Certificate specializing in Marketing and Public Relations


Background Information

Just starting to get into writing. So far I have a few articles in the York Region Ancestors newsletters.  The December 2011 issue of Site Lines also has an article that I wrote.

Currently working on a collection of short stories with the recurring characters Detective Hodgins and Constable Barnes. Set in Toronto 1874-1889. Each story is based on something that really happened.

Enjoy Emily Brightwell, the older Stephen King books, Clive Cusser, John Saul, Dean Koontz, Monica Ferris.

On the back-burner is a fictionalized account of a true story that I found doing some family research.  I was on an episode of Ancestor's in the Attic, on the Canadian History Channel - first season.  This provided some information that was missing in my research.  Since I do not have enough information to write a non-fiction, I decided to turn it into an historical fiction.  Not the norm for a genealogist.

Accomplishments

Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies - Canadian and English programmes
Creative Writing Program (U of Calgary)
