Hi! I’m a homeschooling mom of four, a wife, an organizer, a lover of flying things (including birds, dragons and fairies) and world-traveller. My heart longs to share God’s love around the world and help those in need, so you could say I’m a “word missionary”.
I’m currently working on a young adult dystopian novel, The Wall of Erith. (Sign up below to receive two newsletters a month with updates!)
As for other writing achievements, in 2008 I was one of six nominees for the 2008 Christian Writers’ Guild ‘Canada’s Best New Christian Author’ award for a young adult fantasy novel.
I’ve written a number of screenplays, one of which earned me the designation of a top-twelve finalist in Art Within Labs Screenplay Competition in 2008. I’ve taken numerous courses and classes about screenwriting. I’d love to see my words come to life on the big screen!
I’ve also had numerous articles published in magazines, newspapers and on the internet and have years of business copy writing experience. Add to that a portfolio of hundreds of dramas I’ve written and produced, and a full-length feature play.
I blogged over at Basic Abundance for a time about minimalism and simplicity. Then we grew our family by three more kids and I started homeschooling and running the office end of my husband’s business Stone Gate Architectural Services. So I took a writing hiatus for a few years, but I just can’t stay away.
Now, my writing desk and books are crammed in a corner of my bedroom while I wait for one of my children to finally give in and let me have their bedroom as my office. It seems bribery only goes so far these days…
