I was born and raised in northern Ontario in a small town called Trout Creek.

The farm where I grew up was an amazing place (see my first post, The Eye of the Storm for a picture). Living here was a blessing and an opportunity to commune with nature.

Perhaps that is why, after 12 years of living in Toronto, I found Vancouver, and 9 months later I had moved again. I have never looked back.

Most of my career has been spent working in publishing and advertising as a production coordinator and a proofreader.

My dream?

To have a log cabin built somewhere far from the busy city where I spend my days gardening, hiking, writing and cooking with my husband, who would be a professional masseuse and a gourmet chef. Sigh…

Some of my favourite things

Movies What About Bob?, The Devil Wears Prada and The Fugitive.

Actors Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson.

Book Harry Potter series.

Pets Don’t have any at the moment, but would love to share my apartment with a parrot.

Food Now, that’s a hard one – depends on the season – Indian cuisine and stew in winter, and fruit smoothies in the summer; oh, and then there is of course chocolate – good in any season!

Interests Nutrition, camping, photography, dancing, playing cards, word games, sudoko, hiking, yoga.
