BIOGRAPHICAL DETAILS: From a very early age writing has been my vocation and in one way or another the basis of my career. I graduated from Langley College with a diploma in jounrnalism in 1981 and since then have worked as a reporter, editor, freelance writer, publication producer and communications specialist. It is only in the last ten years that I have had the confidence to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a novelist. I have written three novels to date, with Josh and the Magic Vial the first published. I will continue to write fiction until my pen runs out of ink.
