Words are my motivation, playing with them, like they are a puzzle. Always trying to make visual pictures.Everything, and anything, person, place or thing has a story to tell, itís all about being in the right place at the right time. Somewhere, in a moment of time, I may have an inspiration and my imagination will take over, and a story will be born.I wait for those times. My web site is no


Background Information

I grew up in a natural wilderness park in North Vancouver, BC, Canada, called Lynn Canyon Park. My parents, at that time were the caretakers of the 612 acre  park and ran a store, a food concession, and a gift shop for the thousands of visitors who enjoyed the park each year. A rainforest of giant one-hundred year old Douglas-fir, hemlock, and red cedars, surrounded the family’s home. Twin snowy mountain peaks, a deep canyon and a world famous suspension bridge were the view from the picture window of their home. The cable suspension bridge swayed 20 stories above the raging Lynn Creek. I loved to hike the mountain trails, swim and fish in the creek.  The poem I have posted The Valley of the Ravine  is remembering my younger years in the park.

I now reside in Atlantic Canada with my husband,  my two married children and three grandchildren live near. I am a member of Innercircle of Poets. I also have a room devoted to all my owl figurines the characters in my novel Rooke's Island
