Best Selling Author of The Holiday Series and The Gumboot & Gumshoe Series


Happy Canada Day & Independence Day

Wishing all of my Canadian friends and readers a Happy 150th Anniversary today and a Happy Independence Day to my American friends on July 4th. Stay safe. Stay strong. Be free. Wear sunscreen.

And to one of my Beta Readers, thanks for joining the adventure, Deb Nicol.

“Independence” featured on Kindle Boards

Independence, my summer block buster was recently featured on KindleBoards. Independence, like its sister books are all optioned to film. We shall see what 2018 brings.

Summer’s here…almost

I love the summer. Time for sun, surf, and new reads.

It’s been cold here on Vancouver Island, but we are finally seeing a little bit of sun and feeling like pulling out the kayaks and putting on some shorts. It’s also time to step away from the script re-writes, if only briefly (the One Frosty Christmas original screenplay was a musical…yes, you read it right…a musical…and now it’s not) and take some time out to read some new books.  Just started reading Mr. Mercedes, although it is creeping me out a bit. I’ll keep reading, but only by the light of day. lol

Thriller author, Mark Dawson, donating sales proceeds to new mom with cancer

Imagine that you are pregnant and just got diagnosed with cancer. If you have chemo, you could lose your baby. If you don’t, you could lose your life. That was one mother’s choice.

Best selling thriller writer Mark Dawson has written a novel with all proceeds going to help one mother’s fight to stay alive to see her newborn child grow up.

Thanks to all who check out Mark’s novel and help Emma Johns fight the good fight.

God Bless.
