Born in southern Manitoba, the daughter of a Beekeeper, and spent a lot of time out in the country, catching small animals, exploring abandoned buildings, and lighting fires. When I was twenty one, I was formally diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, a mild form of Autism.
I’m a writer of dieselpunk fantasy, and long time member of several face to face writing groups as well as the OWW – sff.onlinewritingworkshop.com. I started writing when I was thirteen, but actually started telling stories at five years old in a friend’s basement, using cardboard boxes as props. Those boxes became castles, circus trains, soup pots, and we were princesses, circus animals, and rabbits escaping from the stew. That was when it started. My parents complained that I always had my head in the clouds, daydreaming, and I did. The stories come, I can’t stop them. I figure I might as well write them down.
After spending several years researching aviation for my current main work in progress, I still couldn’t get my head out of the clouds and realized writing about it was never going to be enough. March 2013 I began flight school in St. Andrews Manitoba. I now hold a commercial pilot’s licence, float and multi-engine instrument ratings.
