Why a Goblin Postman?
Because I write what I love to read: stories of adventure, mystery, suspense, and fantasy. Stories about ordinary people who get mixed up in extraordinary trouble. Stories that are magical and haunting and bizarre. Stories that creep into your imagination and your dreams — like mail delivered by the Goblin Postman.
I was born and raised in Ottawa, the middle child of seven. My family descended from Scottish, Irish, and English pioneers who settled in the Ottawa Valley when it was still mostly uncut forest. I grew up on tales of ghosts, runaway sleighs, and stolen children.
I began writing when I was old enough to hold a crayon, and I haven’t stopped since. Besides a fiction writer, over the years I have been a librarian, a press reader, a newspaper reporter, and a communications officer at a university.
I live in Kitchener, Ontario, with my husband Eric and a small, fierce cat named Pooka. My son and daughter-in-law are also published authors.
