About Me

I was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. 

I found my love for dogs at the young age of two years old in St. Bernards that lived across the street from my childhood home. 

My passion for canines has taken me down the roads of assisting in rescues, training, and partaking actively in many dog sports in my lifetime. 

After spending most of my career in the financial sector, I took a step away and started what I thought would be a simple journal to remember Gunner, a dog that changed my life. This "journal" took a life of it's own and became my first self published novel, Heart Dog - Gunner's Story.

Today, my husband Tim and I, reside in the interlake community of Petersfield, Manitoba, just north of the city where I was raised. We enjoy our time together making memories with our two Dobermans, Liar and Blaze (whom you'll see a lot of pictures of!).

I've always had people tell me I should write a book and share our stories. Within my writing, not only do I share our laughs but also our struggles with canine health issues. I believe that by sharing personal experiences - we learn. 

I've always believed that "everything happens for a reason".

In February of 2020, I published The Side Eye. This book is totally different then my first as it's a book for the non-reader! 75 full color pages, mostly of humor with a hint of learning mixed in.

Due to popular demand - The Side Eye is now a series sharing more canine laughs but now kicking it up a notch and going ALL BREEDS!

#3 The Side Eye - Crossing the Line!

My books and now this website have a reason - to make you laugh so hard that coffee comes out your nose, sometimes cry and also learn!



I don't have an agent, I don't have a marketing plan, I'm just me - someone who loves dogs and have stories to share from my heart!
