About the Author
When not hunched over my computer conversing with people who exist only in my head, I spend my time trying to tame an unruly half-acre garden and an even more unruly Jack Chi. I also share my southern Ontario home with two rescue cats and an overactive Netflix account.
I write The Ruby Danger series of financial thrillers, and a cozy mystery series, The Leafy Hollow Mysteries. The Ruby books reflect my interest in fraud and how it ruins lives, while the Leafy Hollow volumes are more light-hearted. I hope you enjoy them.
