I came to writing through the back door so to speak. My formal training is as a Survey Engineer, and I worked in that field for many years.
One day, while dragging a chain saw and survey gear through the woods, I realized this was not as much fun as it was when I was 20! So I switched careers to become a REALTOR(r) with Century 21.
I have kept a journal for over twenty years which led me to writing longer stories. Now I have had two children's books published by Dragon Dreams Inc., located in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. The first, "Owen and the Dinosaur", is a picture book while the second, "Emily Finds a Dragon" is a middle grade book. I was honoured to have "Emily.." nominated for the 2013 Hackmatack Children's Choice Award.
