Updated December 9, 2017

In honour of my mom who passed away just a few days ago, I am going to try hard to focus on the things she loved to do. One was write, and the other was crochet. She hasn't been able to do either for some time because of her detiorating health, but I am honoured to have inherited the genes which make both easy for me.

Mom never did get to see the last book in my Hidden Estate Series, because I stopped writing it when my dad passed away on July 31, 2014. If I get any book finished in 2018, it will be that one. I think I owe it to them both to complete the story.

In addition to my writing, I also enjoy spinning, designing crochet patterns and gardening. Our recent move to our own property will enable me to garden once again, and I look forward to sharing more Hubs about gardening during the summer. It has been a few years since I have been able to plant a garden, so I am anxiously awaiting spring. It will give me something to look forward to when the wind is howling outside and the temperatures dip to -40.

My books can be found on Amazon, and my patterns on Etsy. Blending two of my favourite things have proven to be a good combination. Thanks to all for reading my Hubs; your support is appreciated.
