Introduction My first love is writing and my historical novel, The First Vial, was published in 2005. Much to my surprise it was nominated in 2006 for a young readers' choice award by the Ontario Library Association. After a devastating house fire I lost all my research material and first draft for my second historical novel so am still slogging away at that. My other passion is gardening and I live in a challenging northern zone with my husband and our little dog, Spencer.
Interests Northern gardening presents a lot of problems, both with temperature swings and pests - foraging rabbits, caterpillars, slugs.... but I enjoy experimenting with crops that aren't supposed to thrive in our short growing season.
