I'm a Freelance Writer and small business Marketing Consultant and live with my husband on the outskirts of Halifax. I work from home and am fortunate to live in a very quiet locale, which allows my imagination to wander and create when I write. I have been blessed with being able to live right here in Halifax all my life, and enjoy the 'slower pace' of life that a smaller city offers. I have two grown children, who are a huge part of our lives and we like to spend time with them and all members of our family whenever possible. I have worked in the Marketing/ Advertising industry for almost 30 years and have loved every minute of it. I have always loved writing; ever since I was a child; so, it was a natural progression for me to write, and work in the marketing industry for most of my professional life. Fortunately, I now am in a position to work for myself. The freedom is grand. And I must say, that the thought of retiring never enters my mind; and I wager I will probably be working well into my 80's or longer. Positive thinking, eh?
