“Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees.”
∼Walter de la Mare
I’m a Canadian journalist, copywriter, editor and ‘PUN’dit. I’ve been writing since I can remember, starting with some amateur pop culture scribing in my orange Hilroy school diaries which I’ve hung on to since grade three.
While I love writing about lifestyle, entertainment and society genres, I equally get a charge profiling the dynamic lives of successful entrepreneurs. Really, I love to share people’s stories, period. No matter their walks of life. The point is they walked, somewhere. And if there happens to be a light at the end of a tunnel after some menacing hurdle thrown in their midst—even better. Overcoming life’s challenges make for the most compelling types of stories, both to read and to write.
In my spare time, I enjoy luxuriating in memoir, biography, women’s fiction and literary non-fiction. I’m also a self-ascribed TV crackhead and Vanity Fair and People junkie—but one who reveres kitties, trees, birds and bodies of water—all of Mama Earth’s marvelous creations—far more.
I believe life also requires brown paper bags full of Swedish Berries and cans of Diet Dr. Pepper. And besides a big family who loves me immeasurably, and right back at them, I would not be complete without strong, hot and creamy dark roast every morning. And Amarone wine. And cheese.
