Romancing Canada's Indigenous People



Born and raised on the rez, I’m an Ojibway chickie who now calls the country home, somewhere in Northwestern Ontario.

I read, write, golf, and love music. My life revolves around my hubby and our fur babies (two beautiful Alaskan Malamutes).

When my older sister passed me her copy of Paradise Wild by Johanna Lindsey, I became hooked on romance. Although I spent most of my life spinning tales, starting with Ken and Barbie, I didn’t consider pursuing publication until the summer of 2010.

I’m a reader first and a writer second. My top romance authors are Johanna Lindsey, Sue Harrison, and Vella Munn. In the mystery category, I adore Maureen Jennings and James Runcie. As for Indigenous Peoples literature, Richard Wagamese and Louise Erdrich are at the top of my list. Since I scare easily, I limit my paranormal reading to Anne Rice. Check out My E-Reader to see what I’m currently devouring.

I’m also an autobiography, biography, and memoir junkie, especially stories about my fave rock bands, golfers, groupies, and historical figures.


On a more personal note, I live and breathe music, and listen to it all, from the Everly Brothers and the Eagles to Burton Cummings and Waylon Jennings, but heavy metal and hard rock are my genres of choice. My fave bands are Megadeth, Collective Soul, Saliva, Stone Sour, Volbeat, Madam Adam, Judas Priest, and Van Halen.

My TV viewing is mostly dedicated to (period) murder mysteries. I’m hooked on Grantchester, Sherlock, Murdoch Mysteries, and Poirot–but I can’t forget Fargo the TV Series, and the DP World Tour and PGA Tour broadcasted by the Golf Channel.

What I love above all else are my early morning walks with the Mals–just us, nature, and God for an hour and a half.
