I’m an author of non-fiction, usually with a geeky twist. Most of my inspiration for writing non-fiction comes from the woodlands surrounding our home, but the geeky side comes from a love of fantasy and sci-fi movies and TV shows.
My current project is about finding your Kingdom purpose if you don’t fit in one of the usual ‘boxes’, and I’m slowly writing my first fantasy novel. A short story from my childhood in mid-century England has recently been published in the latest Hot Apple Cider book, ‘Hot Apple Cider with Cinnamon’. My smaller projects – ebooks and courses – can be found on White Rose Writers and Etsy.
I’m also a Christian life coach and novice writers’ coach. I enjoy helping people realize their purpose for God’s Kingdom and see a client’s face light up when God reveals His purpose for them!
My son, Benjamin, is also a published author and grew up on the Autism Spectrum. I help with his promotions and online marketing.
I’ll share some writing tips and coaching prompts occasionally, but most of my writing is fairly random. So expect a variety of blogs on these topics and links to the unordinary.
I live in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, with my husband, Stephen, and our cat, Smokey. I am very blessed.
Why I write:
My favourite quote is one I memorized as a child while I sat rocking in my great-aunts’ kitchen. She had a needlepoint on the wall which read:
“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.” – Etienne (Stephen) Grellet.
It encourages me now many years later that words are powerful and everlasting, whether written or spoken.
