About Me

I’m a writer, driver of buses (and other assorted vehicles of size) proud country-dweller and lover of travel. I was born in small town Saskatchewan, Canada. Maidstone to be exact. Mom and dad took me home to the Charolais cattle ranch near Marshall, Saskatchewan with my brother Bill where I grew to love the prairie landscape. My childhood was unremarkable, but from quite a young age I held tightly to a dream. I wanted to be a writer. Sadly, it took fifty odd years to come to fruition, but now I am virtually unstoppable (or so I tell myself).  I have four children who are mostly all grown now, except for Aliyah, my youngest daughter. Aliyah keeps me on track, prevents such things as a swelled head or inflated ego, and keeps a watchful eye on things like the expiry date on food items lest we all perish in some nasty poisoning incident.  She is also the main photographer throughout this blog.

The peace of Erinbourne has been shattered, and Kayden must return to the land he has grown to love. What confronts him is more horrific than he could ever have imagined. Family murdered and the most lethal weapon in the land stolen. Kayden and his friends vow to hunt down the ruthless sorcerer responsible for these atrocities. Yet, danger and death face them at every turn as they enter the mountain lair where their enemy lies in wait. 

Kayden’s only hope lies in the power of his Runestaff, and a mysterious legacy buried deep beneath the mountain. Will the truth of his heritage and the love he feels for both Erinbourne and a fierce, blue-eyed girl, enable Kayden to claim his birthright and defeat the sorcerer’s dark magic. Or will he fail in his quest and fall to the supernatural power—sealing the fate of a world forever?

“The Legacy” is Volume III in the exciting fantasy series, “Runestaff Chronicles”.

I was in Marshall School on September 1st to begin the new year as an EA and haven’t darkened their door since. Surprised? I was too, and since calamities are said to happen in threes, I’ve been waiting for the other shoe to drop. Allow me to explain. On that fateful...

Graduation Memories

When kids graduate from the school where I work, I always feel sad, especially those who also ride my school bus. Small country schools engender close relationships. This June, two girls, Molly, and Paisley will be leaving. They will be sorely missed. Of course, not...

Fashion or faux pas

Do you follow styles or keep up with the latest trends in fashion? Regardless of whether you go to that extreme, I think we all want to look neat and tidy. Especially when you’re the sort of person my dad used to refer to when he’d say, “That guy could put on a...
