Women of power throughout time and place have depicted themselves as spinners to the public. It was part of being a powerful woman.

It's time to get thinking about how we'll stay cool this summer, even though some of us still have snow.

Work
Occupation
I am a writer, food grower, and arm-chair explorer who breathes words.
Basic Information
Gender
Female
Story
Tagline
Author of A Thousand Shades of Feeling and Frizzle stories. Knitter. A writer who happens to love women, not a lesbian who happens to write.
Introduction
I am many things, writer, mother, partner, gardener, friend and honorary dog-pack member. All of these things influence who I am and how I write. I am always looking for inspiration, sometimes found in a snippet of conversation, "was that a sneezing moose?", sometimes in a show on television. I live in the wilderness of Ontario. One of the most beautiful places on earth. This influences my writing more every week.
I adore my wife, chocolate, my family and my dogs...not in that order.
I hate mice, rats, heights and being powerless.
Bragging rights
I have a published novel, 'A Thousand Shades of Feeling', numerous published short stories in different genres, a couple of articles in print and a series of stories about a young dragon named Frizzle. I am enthralled by the what-if and alternate worlds.
