Excerpt One:

Mom? Are you reading this? Maybe you should have a drink first. Can we get a rum and coke over here? She’s gonna need it...

A lot of people have asked me throughout this process, why I would want to write this book. There are a few reasons why I decided to completely expose myself for the world to see, but certainly one particular moment comes to mind. During a heated argument with my ex-husband, post-divorce, he blurted out that he thought I was incapable of loving another human being. It’s one of those things you hear that is so shocking to you that the argument just ceases. I was speechless, I didn’t know what to say. Normally I would have chalked it up to the fact that he was in fact a disgruntled ex because it wouldn’t be the first time we got down and dirty in an argument, but this time I didn’t. I never forgot that comment, mainly because I wondered for years if it was true. There was just something about the way he said it that made me wonder if I was really that irrevocably screwed up. So, I decided to delve into my past, for my sake as well as my daughters, to find out why I walked out on a relationship that everyone thought was perfect.

Book Description:
WHAT MAKES THIS BOOK AWESOME?
There's an evil queen, a demented father, some amateur boxing and a trailer park story. Even a silver fox makes an appearance. Why wouldn't that entice you?
If you are looking for something different from the rest of the books out there, something that might make you question your sanity then you will love this book.
Seriously! The comedic and sassy perspective will make you see things differently, and you may even find yourself laughing out loud. It's a good story and one that I truly believe needs to be told. Period.
It’s dark, raw and takes you to a door that keeps all my innermost secrets. I hope that the book makes you laugh, makes you cry, and inspires you to be the best version of yourself.

Interview:
Where are you from?

I’m originally from Sault Ste, Marie, Ontario Canada, but I moved to Windsor, Ontario 17 years ago, after I graduated from University. I’ve been here ever since.

Tell us your latest news?

I’m currently working with an agent on my second novel, it’s a fiction this time, in the genre of dark romance/thriller. It’s based on a serial killer in Thailand that wreaked havoc. It’s almost finished, we are currently editing the project. From there we can shop it around to publishers.

When and why did you begin writing?

I started writing 15 years ago; it’s kind of something that I’ve always done through journaling. I decided to take it on professionally because I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

The first time that I completed an entire story, I knew that I was a writer. It was a short story called The Unusual Suspects and it was printed in a local magazine. It was the best feeling in the world.

What inspired you to write your first book?

Life inspired me. I knew that I had stories to tell and sometimes the stories won’t be quiet until you tell them. It was something that needed to be said out loud and because of that, the story came out on its own.

What would you like my readers to know?


I would like to thank your readers for taking the time to get to know me and for visiting my stories.
