It is so difficult to explain exactly who I am, so I like to tell people that, “I see the Extraordinary in everyday ordinary”
I write words….
I also write books….well actually one book so far and if I get off my rear end, I will have the second book published sooner than later. My first book, Naked Tuesday, was a work of creative non-fiction where I vajazzled my life events and presented it with a bow. Needless to say, there was no going back after I shared the good, the bad and the ugly of a life lived for 50 years. People tend to look at me a wee bit differently now…..
I am also a columnist for two Regional newspapers: The Alaska Highway News and the Dawson Creek Mirror where I have been sharing my perspective of this crazy world for the past 5 years. I love being a columnist for two reasons: the first being that I can take a deeper dive into a conversation and the second is that sometimes I hit a sweet spot where folks are very vocal about why I am wrong in my thinking. I invite them to change my mind.
With stints as an on-air columnist for CBC Daybreak North with my radio column, “Peace of Mind” and additional freelance writing gigs, you will find me sitting in front of my keyboard daily (often with a confused look on my face).
I love writing because…..I get bored easily.
I sometimes speak words…..
Give the gal a microphone and you won’t get it back! Maybe it has something to do with being a second child or a narcissistic love of hearing myself speak, whatever the case may be….I have very little fear of speaking in public.
Let me know if you need a Moderator, an Emcee or a speaker at your next event!
