I am a Toronto writer and teacher. I invite you to read samples of my short fiction. For the non-fiction lover, I have published articles on topics ranging from salsa dancing to genetic testing. They’re here too.

I’ve just completed a literary novel The Monkey Charm for those who like suspense mixed in with their domestic drama.

My current work-in-progress, Island Secrets features a six-foot tall policewoman stationed on Toronto Island in 1968. My first draft of this mystery novel was completed under the mentorship of Canadian writer Marina Endicott through the Diaspora Dialogues program. Island Secrets was inspired by my father’s stories about policing the Island in the 1960’s. I hope to have this book out soon!
