“Alex” would never forget the magic of the night she met Sam on a deserted beach in Vancouver. But now the spell was broken and Alex Diamond, crimewriter extraordinary, was forced to return to her solitary existence as Mary Houseman from Prince Rupert.
When Sam Dempsey, her “Sam,” arrived to take up residence as the local doctor, Mary panicked.
Writing fiction is a perfect life choice for someone who can’t make up her mind what she wants to do when she grows up!
There are so many choices and I want to do them all. In real life I’ve taken a lot of roads: I’ve studied psychology, volunteered as a peer counselor for a family life organization, worked as an accountant and a software developer, and taught accounting and fraud investigation at a university. Best of all, I've told stories about life, love, and secrets. My heroes and heroines have lived many of the lives I’m fascinated by.
I live with my wonderful husband and two aging-but-energetic Australian Shepherds on Vancouver Island … and every so often we indulge in wanderlust and leave the island to go exploring.
