Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why do you write?
A: Because it’s fun.
Q: Where do you get your ideas?
A: From the real world, either experienced directly or vicariously via the news.
Q: Do you plot out your books before writing them?
No. I start out with an idea, and the story develops as I tell it. Just like in real life. That’s why our dinner parties take so long.
Q: How can I get your Newsletter?
A: I publish an occasional Blog, which waffles on about whatever might be interesting me at the time. You can sign up for it and read back copies at your leisure here.
Q: Do I have to read your books in sequence?
A: Not really, no; each book is a ‘stand alone’ story and can be read as such. However, a story has both the what and the who, so although in each book the ‘what’ makes sense on its own, the ‘who’ – the individual characters – develop over time.
I try to make sure that any threads in the plots that run from one book to another are explained, so that the new reader will not be left scratching their head. That said, some of the individual character development will only be evident when one has read all the books.
Q: What is the order of the books?
A: From the first to the most recent, the books are:
Q: Can I get my books signed?
A: Yes, but please contact me before you buy so we can discuss shipping. Signed books will be shipped from Canada.
Q: How can I support you?
A: Buy my books! If you have already done that, and have given it a rating, please feel free to write a review. The next step is to please tell your friend(s), and you can also request your library to buy copies so that others can enjoy the stories.
If you feel sorry for me sitting around waiting for an idea to strike, you can buy me a coffee or donate monthly using Ko-Fi. I also enjoy hearing from my readers and promise to respond.

Q: What are you working on?
