Important things:
I’m a writer. I live in Vancouver, Canada, and have two wonderful children: a son and a daughter. Both have already flown the nest, so instead of children I now collect monkeys. I have over 300 monkey figurines in my collection. Here are some of them: My monkey collection

Things I do:
I’ve been making up stories with magic and swords since I was very young, but I only started writing professionally in the 21st century. Before that, I was a computer programmer. Besides writing fiction I also work as a journalist for a local newspaper.

Things I like:
• Favorite hobby: reading
• Favorite genres: fantasy, romance, cozy mystery
• Favorite quote: “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” –Winston Churchill
• Favorite music: classical
• Favorite color: green
