Welcome to my online space.
Hmmm. How does one describe themself for an “About” page? Let’s see . . .
I’m a wife, mom, grandma, dog-mom, adoptee, and happily retired woman. I thought I’d have things figured out by now, but keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay.
I’m a writer, photographer, gardener, and sometimes-dabbler with paint.
I am a grateful resident of my hometown Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, having returned after 50 years. My husband and I make our home here with our doted-upon Yorkshire Terrier, Molly.
I’m a writer. I’ve written two memoirs and a chronicle of those “interesting” years of 2020/2021. My work has also appeared in an assortment of publications and a few anthologies. I’m a member of the Inscribe Christian Writers’ Fellowship and a longtime board member at Story Circle Network.
I take photos and enjoy getting up close and personal with flowers and nature and the prairie. I love pulling out my big girl Canon but, as award winning Chase Jarvis, said “the best camera is the one that’s with you”, so I don’t hesitate to use the one on my phone when inspiration strikes.
I play with acrylic and watercolour paint and am truly a beginner with these mediums and create solely for the purpose of creating.
My garden is my happy place—it feeds both my body and soul to dig in the dirt. There is so much to learn in a garden. Plus, you get vegetables.
I think a lot about grace and love and faith, and do my best to wrap my mind around it all. Sometimes I share those musings here.
Thanks for stopping by!
