A bit about me
I am a storyteller and a content creator from Vancouver, BC. I’ve written software manuals and user guides in the high tech industry for 20 years, and run an online business for more than 15.
I’m also devoted to writing fiction. On Saturday’s, you’ll usually find me writing on my laptop with warm socks and tea. I swear, one of these days, that novel will hit the shelves.
I started this site about storytelling thinking I would unlock some magical secret sauce. What I neglected was my own story, and over the years, life became more disconnected from the master plan I had when I was 25.
Now, with two older boys, one graduated and moved out and another graduating this year, I looked around and asked, How the heck did I get here?
It’s time for a new vision.
If you think that starting something new, going in a different direction is for people with their whole life ahead of them, think again. There’s never been a better moment to get started.
I can’t wait share this journey with you.
