Jana pictureEver since I can remember, I've created stories in my head, sometimes about real people but more often about people I made up. It wasn't until I was in my thirties that I began to put my stories down on paper. I've been at it for more than twenty years, although I only become published in novel length fiction in 2007. Just think of me as the poster child for perseverance!

In my life away from writing, I’m an accountant/admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to my husband Warren. I enjoy golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not necessarily in that order. My husband and I live in Winnipeg with several unnamed goldfish and a highly spoiled Terrier/Pug named Lou.

Lou keeping watchWe got Lou almost ten years ago and fell immediately in love. I mean really, look at that face! How can you not fall in love?

You can read about how we got our dog in a real life story I call A Dog Named Lou.
