Tell us a bit about yourself. Include a couple of facts that not a lot of people know about you. 

I was born in South Africa and raised by my grandmother when my parents both succumbed to injuries in two different car wrecks when I was a baby. So my childhood was a little different, but I was so blessed to be taken in by my mother’s family and raised with so much love. My husband and I moved to Toronto, Canada in 1999. Let’s just say it’s very different spending Christmas in the northern hemisphere with snow. We have two Canadian children who I’m so proud of. They are my world.

Michael McCann left their small town of Point, New York soon after graduation and now he returns to face some unresolved issues. Savannah is a research librarian and Michael is a technical rescuer. Although so different, they both fear taking risks, but in different ways. They must both face the past in order to move forward into the future. Aside from all that, they have some fun adventures together, I can’t say more for fear of spoiling it for the readers.
