Welcome! I'm glad you found me.
As a writer, I place my characters in difficult circumstances and then figure out how to extricate them. Exciting! Historical romance is my favourite genre, but for personal enjoyment I read many others. There are so many wonderful stories out there, and even the Lord Jesus used stories to teach, inspire and encourage. My desire is to give you a genuine sense of satisfaction when you finish each of my books.
As a singer, I've recorded several CDs with many of my own compositions - the last one named 'Tapestry'. When my husband was still alive, we performed them at many of our Good News festivals and other outreach events.
As an artist, I am currently creating story characters on textured felt backgrounds to accompany my talks to various groups. If you are interested in a sneak peak, have a look at the Edwardian Ladies' sketches on the Books page.
And finally, something a little more personal: I love cooking French style (that is, mixing whatever I have in the pan - plus a little garlic) and am delighted when my flowers bloom without the aid of a green thumb (which I don't possess). Humour? Oh yes! I share the same sense of absurdity as my adult son.

Did you know that Mme Gorgene Averill designed the first Mama doll who cried when tilted?
Mama doll Lulu is one of the keepsakes in this series.
Can you guess who she belongs to?
