I am a historical fiction writer and 17th Century enthusiast, with a particular interest in the English Civil War (ECW). I belong to the following organizations: the Romantic Novelists’ Association, the Romance Writers of America, the Historical Novelist Society (HNS) and the Writers’ Community of Durham Region (WCDR) where I previously sat on the Board of Directors. I am a co-editor and contributor to the English Historical Fiction Authors Blog, a site devoted to English history, and assist with social media for the HNS. Recently, I became a proud member of the Battle of Worcester Society, an organization devoted to keeping this historic battle in the forefront of history.
I have published a number of articles in the Word Weaver, online E-Zines, Reading as Writers, and the Canadian Authors Association (CAA). My short stories include Confessions of a Tooth Fairy in Canadian Tales of the Fantastical (Red Tuque Books), Warwick Market in Canadian Tales of the Heart (Red Tuque Books), and The Dragon, appearing in Word Weaver. I received the WCDR’s Neil Crone Scholarship in 2011 and the Len Cullen award in 2016.
My historical fiction novel, Traitor’s Knot, a romantic tale of adventure set during the English Civil War, will be published by Endeavour Press, UK. Traitor’s Knot is the first in a series of adventures spanning from the ECW to the Restoration (Road to the Restoration).
