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.

A Garden of Promises

One year ago, Elyse Belliveau, a powerful force at the winery her family has owned in the sun-soaked terrain of Provence for centuries, felt her heart shatter when she tragically lost the man of her dreams. She vowed she would never love again.

Consequently, Elyse is blindsided when an old friend confesses his undying devotion and is dazed when an unexpected stranger sweeps in to tempt her with a second chance at happiness.

Fate clearly has other plans. Yet, a mystery surrounds this stranger. Is he truly as wonderful as he seems? Only time will tell, but time seems in short supply.

Overwhelmed by the force of her reawakened emotions, pressure mounts as Elyse wonders, at fifty-eight, if she’s being foolish. Is giving her heart away a second time worth the risk? Or should she remain alone, content with her family?

Then again, is it ever too late for love?
