I’m so happy to be here at Writerspace sharing Pine Creek Courtship, my debut Amish romance with you. For many years I wrote young adult romance. I loved the sweet innocence of falling in love for the first time. I wrote over a dozen novels in the genre and enjoyed every bit of my time… Read More

Holding Out For a Heroine

Do you love butt-kicking heroines? Is your reading pile stacked with books featuring covers of weapon-wielding women ready to do battle for all that is right and good in the world?

4 Tales from The Pit

When I showed up in the ER many years ago for my first shift as an emergency physician, I didn’t consider myself a pioneer.

8 Jetting Around the World in the Pages of a Book

I grew up in a very small town in central Canada where it was winter for nine months of the year. And not Hallmark-movie-winter with delicate snow falling while characters sip hot drinks wrapped only in a thick sweater and a jaunty scarf. This was eyeballs-freeze-in-thirty-seconds winter.
